Dallas Artist Pays Especially Sweet Tribute to Spock

Amongst the various tributes to Leonard Nimoy via social media over the last few hours (many of us Gen-Xers are not taking this well), Dallas artist Rob Wilson created a particularly sweet homage to everyone’s favorite Vulcan. Via the Dallas Observer: the picture came with the simple caption “Beam Him Up.” Wilson, writes Lauren Smart, “has created numerous designs throughout Dallas and beyond, like the Welcome to Nightvale logos, greeting cards on the shelves of the Nasher Sculpture Center store, and the Kitchen Dog Theater designs for his previous employer, SullivanPerkins.” (He’s shown work at Erin Cluley Gallery.)

I’m a fan of visual artists reacting swiftly and thoughtfully to difficult news. Their creative impulse soothes those of us who are stuck with only words.

“Beam Him Up.”
