Portrait of Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy - the fifth in the Jim W. Coleman ||| Star Trek series. ...


Who could ever forget that climactic scene in "Star Trek III - The Search for Spock" when the Klingon Bird of Prey is fleeing the exploding Genesis planet. When I first thought about trying to capture this on canvas, I was overwhelmed by the enormity of it all. But as you can see, I was successful in not only capturing the moment, but the energy as well. ...


This print was five months in the making and required over 90 hours of precise pen and ink work, on a 30 x 20-inch canvas.  Furthermore, it is the first American-Indian themed print produced since 1984. The print features Sonja Holcomb and yours truly as the models. ...


This is a commissioned portrait of Leonard "Lenny" Laudenslager, the late husband of a dear friend of mine. When Lenny passed away,  his wife asked me to do a portrait piece of him, from a favorite photo of his. Having known and loved Lenny myself, I was honored to be asked and happy to do the work. ...


"Now you're lost in a haze of alcohol soft middle age. The pie in the sky turned out to be miles too high. And you hide, hide, hide, Behind brown and mild eyes." (Lyrics by Pink Floyd). This is yet another Pink Floyd inspired work, darker than most. ...


"When I pick up the phone there'll be no one home." (Lyrics by Pink Floyd.) This print captures one of the most despairing scenes from the motion picture "Pink Floyd The Wall." ...


"They flutter behind you your possible pasts... some bright-eyed and crazy, some frightened and lost" -- (llyrics by Roger Waters). This is dark, angrily-sexual and boldly bitter - a perfect piece for those who relate to the music and lyrics. ...


The first gallery-ready piece in four years, Quark took roughly 85 hours to complete. ...


Ever since seeing "Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country," I've always been haunted by this exchange between Kirk and Spock. The look of pain, disappointment and insult on the formidable Vulcan's face captures a mood we have all felt at some point in our lives.  That, and it makes for an excellent, accurate depiction of our favorite Vulcan. ...


I was a very young man when Star Trek: The Motion Picture came out. So long as I live, I will never forget the dramatic unveiling of the newly refit starship USS Enterprise as Scotty and Kirk approach in a shuttle. ...


This piece took well over 100 hours to complete. Drawn entirely of straight lines, tiny dots  and black areas, the artwork depicts a very recognizable Willie Nelson. The original hangs in my living room, directly over the television and is the most prominent piece in the room. Framed, this will be the delight of any Willie fan - and even those who aren't. ...


In the mid 1980's, I spent a significant amount of time along the banks of the Verde River, northeast of Phoenix, Arizona. It was a great place to fish, to hike, to explore, to shoot, to take pictures, to swim, to skinnydip, to meet new people, to romp, to play ... to escape. ...


When I did this original art piece, I just knew I had to have Willie Nelson sign it. A year or two later, he did!!! ...
