Here is a some of the grooviest Star Trek pop art that I have seen. The art was designed by Juan Ortiz and you can buy a set of four 18 x 24 inch posters for $34.95 at Quantum Mechanix. These pieces have truly captured the wonderful colors represented in the original TV series.
The posters and descriptions follow:
Episode 9: Dagger of the Mind. "The image is a stylized version of the patch worn by the doctor in the episode," says Ortiz. "I tried to give this poster an old Playbill look."
Episode 28: The City on the Edge of Forever. In drawing the character Edith Keeler, Ortiz went with "a '70s/'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' approach." The Beatles' Yellow Submarine was and still is a big influence in much of his work.
Episode 53: The Ultimate Computer. Ortiz wanted to be sure to credit not just the lead actors, but the writers and director as well. He says, "They are, after all, the creators. I'm just interpreting their words and visuals in a different format."
Episode 75: The Way to Eden. The look here is Grateful Dead-esque. "I knew that I wanted to create a black-light poster for this series, and naturally, "The Way to Eden," with its hippie theme, seemed perfect," says the artist.
I love the poster for Episode 28 the best, which is your favoirte poster? Have you watched the original Star Trek series?
