All of the art originals I have produced in the past four years have been privately commissioned or were drawn for a specific cause or individual. In early November, 2017, I finished "Quark," the first original piece in four years that will eventually go on exhibit and then on to sale. This also is the fourth piece in a ten-piece planned Star Trek series.
Recently, my wife and I watched every episode of "Deep Space Nine" in a row, and Armin Shimerman's performance as Ferengi bartender "Quark" really captivated my imagination. When doing this piece, I tried hard to capture the character's empathy, but also his strict adherence to the Rules of Acquisition. When looking at this piece now, I envision him saying, "I'm truly sorry I have to charge you this much but a Ferengi's got to make a living." :)
Speaking of making a living, I am not offering reprints of this piece for sale. The original is available for gallery display or sale. Please e-mail me if interested.
Dimensions: 34 x 24 inches

NOTE: You are purchasing a professionally reprinted poster of an original art piece. A matte and frame is not included - that is an individual choice to be made by the purchaser.
Any watermarks visible in the gallery photos have been digitally added to protect the online images; the watermarks are not part of the original or reprinted art pieces.
The original artwork is drawn on 1/4-inch foamcore board. It ships in a wooden frame (gold colored) with UV-resistant plexiglass. The matte is a flat burgundy color.
This is an art original. It is shipped framed, inside a custom sturdy wooden box. Buyer adds $100 to the purchase price to cover the cost of building the custom crate and shipping. If actual costs come to less than $100, that difference is refunded to the purchaser.
