March Ortiz Star Trek PrintsPosted by T'Bonz - 05/03/13 at 09:03 am
Four new original series prints created by Juan Ortiz have been released.
The latest set includes art based on A Piece of the Action, Bread and Circuses, The Omega Glory, and For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky.
Ortiz commented on his artwork, explaining his designs. For A Piece of the Action, the poster features an alien from Sigma Iotia II holding a Tommy gun. “This may not be what they looked like in the actual episode,” said Ortiz, “but I can imagine this working in either the Gold Key Comics or The Animated Series. I consider the two mediums to be part of TOS world.”
The poster for The Omega Glory is based on the opening teaser of the episode. “The opening teaser seemed interesting enough to include in a poster,” said Ortiz. “The flag was added because of the episode’s story line. I think if you’re unfamiliar with the episode, this image should spark some interest in viewing it.”
A “redshirt,” often doomed on Star Trek, is featured on the poster, and Ortiz admitted to having wanted to depict one of them in his artwork. “I didn’t think that I would get the chance until I came to this episode,” he said. “This is one of maybe two where I paid homage to the redshirts.”
The four prints, plated-printed lithographs measuring 18×24, are sold as a set, and cost $34.95.
