Dallas Artist Rob Wilson Creates Touching Tribute to Leonard Nimoy

Today, the world was dealt a sad blow. Leonard Nimoy, Spock of 'Star Trek,' died at 83. "Live Long and Prosper" popped up numerous times in my newsfeed, stories of Nimoy and Star Trek were everywhere, but one tribute caught my eye. Rob Wilson, local artist and graphic designer extraordinaire, created a simple, touching image with the caption, "Beam Him Up."

Wilson, who shows at Erin Cluley Gallery, 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. Catch Wilson's first scenic design work for Kitchen Dog Theater's upcoming play, Wilde/Earnest. More of his work can be seen at robwilson-work.tumblr.com.
