Michael’s Star Trek-Inspired Teacher Sendoff

ArtCorgi Star Trek Commission

This commission by TheMeeDes may be one of our favorite pieces of the year— but of course we are biased. We are huge Star Trek fans! Michael ordered it as a gift to his favorite teacher who is soon to retire. If only all retirement gifts were so fun!

Should you like to commission a piece of your own in this style, check out TheMeeDes’ portrait commission page.

Backstory Behind the Piece: Q&A with Michael

ArtCorgi (AC): What inspired you to commission this art?

Michael (M): My favorite teacher and possibly the reason I want to go into teaching might retire, and I want him to know we’ll miss him.

AC: How did you go about selecting an artist/style?

M: I liked the price point and the fact that it was a more realistic digital style, not like a caricature or anything. I wanted it to be recognizable.

AC: What advice would you give to a friend who is interested in commissioning art for the first time?

M: Don’t get all up in arms about picking someone. Narrow it down and roll a dice if you have to.
