Dave Cockrum's Star Trek
I've always loved Dave Cockrum's art. One of my first exposures to his work is when he drew Marvel's Star Trek comic in the early 80's after the first movie came out. His style was perfect for Kirk, Spock, and the rest of the Enterprise crew's adventures. He drew these neat costume guides for the new style Starfleet uniforms, which were pretty much abandoned a couple of years later when Star Trek II came out.
It's a shame Dave's no longer with us. I would have loved to have seen what he could have done with J.J. Abrams' version of the classic crew. I bet it would have been great, just like these pieces were.
