The latest batch of Juan Ortiz original series art prints has been announced.
The four prints for January include: Mirror, Mirror, The Tholian Web, Miri and The Savage Curtain.
Ortiz spoke about his latest creations and what inspired them.
For Mirror, Mirror, his inspiration was “boxing match flyers.” “I don’t usually lean towards bold colors, but this time it works to reflect the excitement that a boxing match usually evokes,” said Ortiz. “I chose the two Spocks because of the way ‘evil’ Spock’s iconic goatee strongly contradicts good/regular Spock.”
The Tholian Web was inspired by “Russian film posters of the mid 1920’s to early 1930’s,” said Ortiz. “What I like about those posters is their mix of photos along with illustrations. Which is perfect for me, because I don’t want to be bogged down with just one style. Since I went with a black and white image, I went with the red on the title so that it would pop. I think the font mirrors the style of the spacesuit, a bit.”
Ortiz’s favorite of these four posters is Mirror, Mirror. “It’s a great episode and the bold colors will make it a focal point,” he said.
