Picard Day #3

18Jun10

Lucy Knisley illustrates that a comfortable chair is essential for great captaining.

Chris Dugan sent in this great poster parody featuring Picard.

Craig Arndt shows us a subtler side of his appreciation of Jean Luc.

Greg Williams sent in this crazy wiggly photo of a Picard/Locutus of Borg figure that is probably going to hypnotize you!

Regina Legaspi not only did a watercolour portrait of a role model, but she also made an awesome frame to put it in that shows off his favourite things!

Keep sending in your Picarldly arts! There’s still lots more to come!

Picard Day #2

17Jun10

picard head!

Stephen Brooks felt inspired to create this Captain Picard head here!

Make it so OR ELSE

Timothy Winchester reminds us all through this comic that you better do what Picard says or he’ll make a disappointed face at you and that is THE WORST!

TEA TIME

Picard, Captain, HOT! Am I right, or am I right? This spicy submission is courtesy of Jeremia!

space the final frontier

Pat Lewis totally drew Picard in my favourite of all the uniforms he wore through Next Gen. It’s the classiest one, in my opinion!

Doug ran this comic yesterday to celebrate Captain Picard Day! Geordi LaForge does what he’s got to do to keep the Captain happy!

Thanks so much to everyone who’s been emailing me their submissions! There’s still time to send something in since I’m going to be posting up Picard arts for the next week. He’s rad enough to have a whole week devoted to him, I figure!

There are four lights!

Tyler Gunter sent in this amazing flash game. Click on the above image, or right here to play it! In his words “It is kind of messed up, but it is meant to represent captain picard’s torture at the hands of evil cardassians… in a very bizarre and silly and confusing way. It may be awful, but if it is, then it’s sort of appropriate considering what the kids made for captain picard in that episode.”

Shake it like a polaroid picard picture

Laurence Vagner sent in this inspired polaroid from France. That’s where Captain Jean Luc Picard is from too!

In watercolours

Jori Baldwin has captured the shape of the Captains head perfectly, don’t you agree? No mis-shapen orange stuff going on here.

Lounging like a boss

Karl Clay illustrated this on white vellum, then hand-cut it with an X-acto and laid over a black board! You can’t pay tribute to Picard without giving props to Patrick Stewart, the actor that played him on the show. He was just knighted by the Queen of England! So I guess that means he’s Sir Patrick Stewart now!

the tea isn't the only thing that's hot!

Colleen MacIsaac says “I love a man who loves his tea”. I second that statement big time. I like to think that ‘Tea, Earl Grey, Hot’ is the official drink of Captain Picard Day. I know I’ll be drinking a pot of it today!

OK! So make sure to wish all your friends and family and even your enemies a Happy Captain Picard Day! Maybe watch some Star Trek: Next Generation, or say “Make it so” a lot! You could even bust out some markers and draw a portrait of that awesome role model and send it in to me at travale@gmail.com and I’ll post it up here for all to enjoy! Check back in tomorrow for even more totally rad Captain Picard tributes!


Every year Captain Picard Day is celebrated on June 16th. This year let’s commemorate it with some art devoted to the one of the bestest, baldest, and badassiest Star Trek captains around. If you would like to submit some illustrations, comics, or crafty stuff that feature Captain Picard and his special day, just send it in an email to me at travaleATgmailDOTcom with ‘Picard Day’ in the subject line. Make sure to include your name so I can credit your work and a link to a website or blog if you have one. Starting on June 16th and until June 23th I’ll be posting up the submissions, making it a Captain Picard Day week long celebration. I hope you all will spread the word and send something in!


Captain Picard Day!
