Following the death last week of Yvonne Craig, who appeared as Marta on Star Trek (in addition to playing Batgirl on the Batman TV series of the ’60s), this art project caught our eye — “Ladies of Kirk,” an illustrated book that has already made its funding goal on Kickstarter.
Artist Kelly McMorris has a simple plan: “I have drawn all of the women that Captain Kirk ever kissed,” she says in the video (scroll down or visit the campaign page to see it). She’s producing the 40-page book for pre-order and to sell at conventions. Here are 10 of her drawings with select comments; to see all of them visit her DeviantArt profile.
