Fascinating by Avik Kumar Maitra

Ever since the recent passing of Leonard Nimoy, I have wanted to post something that highlights the incredible fan-art that has been created around him and his characters. This seems like a simple task but it has been far from it, thanks to the sheer volume and outstanding talent of those involved.

After looking at thousands of images, I came upon this one – “Fascinating” by Deviant Artist Avik Kumar Maitra.

Whilst not the greatest digital painting ever created, there is something about it which just captures the Spock character perfectly for me, and if you removed the word “Fascinating” from the bottom, my mind would still inevitably conjure up that word regardless.
