Here we are nearing the end of 2013 — which would have boggled the mind of my eight-year-old self, at least until he noticed there were no readily available flying cars and went off to sulk. We’ve just celebrated a holiday that’s ostensibly about family and thankfulness, but that’s usually overshadowed by Black Friday’s annual exploration of the worst impulses humanity has to offer. As you’re rushing about, trying to find the perfect gifts for that special someone, we here at GFR invite you to sit back, put your feet on the table, and relax for a few minutes while you drink in the awesome that is this latest batch of artist Juan Ortiz’s excellent Star Trek retro poster prints.
Last year Ortiz set a mammoth task before himself: creating a retro-style poster print for every single one of Star Trek: The Original Series’ episodes. (He even found time to whip up one for each of the Animated Series episodes.) It’s been a long trip, but Ortiz’ handiwork just keeps coming, and his designs are consistently creative and well-imagined, spanning a wide array of styles and concepts. We kind of love ‘em here at GFR. Now the latest batch has gone up and you can check out all four here, along with Ortiz’s commentary from StarTrek.com. Check it out below, and we’ll have info about where you can order copies of the prints at the bottom.
