Keith Birdsong, 59, born and raised in Muskogee, died today from injuries sustained in a car wreck. He had spent the last year recovering from a massive brain bleed.

Birdsong was an in-demand artist whose work graced TV shows, book covers and even US Postal stamps. He is most famous for his work with TV and movie property Star Trek, for which he created photo-realistic renditions of space ships and cast members ranging from William Shatner to Chris Pine. He used a technique that blended colored pencils and a concoction he called “acrylic wash” to create his works of art.

Using local models, Birdsong also created ethereal works of art depicting complex themes.

Services are scheduled at 2 p.m. June 14 — a month before what would have been his 60th birthday — at Christian Chapel in Muskogee, 4043, Chandler Road.
