This project is a testament to exactly how very sick and bored I've been this past week.

After watching several disks' worth of Star Trek: The Next Generation, I for some reason felt compelled to create this little shrink plastic homage (I blame the painkillers).  I'm justifying it to myself by making it a gift for my sister, so I'll be plopping it onto some sort of necklace-like structure in the next few days.  The original plan was to go with a plain silver chain to keep it uncluttered, but I may decide that's too dull.  Ideas would be ever so welcome!

I'm impressed at the detail you got with Shrink Art, it looks just like him.

Looks just like him! I have to admit that when I was recovering from surgery and on painkillers, I did something very similar, but it was a drawing of Picard riding a dragon, lol! Something about those painkillers.....

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.

The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists-Dickens
