I came home one day after a night class, and my Dad tells me that he Tivo’d something (this was before every house had a DVR, and we used rotary phones and dinosaurs roamed the Earth). He says, “It’s a sci-fi western. Like, cowboys in space.” To which I said, “that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.”
As it turned out, the series was one of the best things I’d seen on TV. I’d been doing a Word Art Project for awhile, and wanted to work with a different format and on something a bit more limited than “whatever I feel like doodling.”
Thus, I decided to make posters for each Firefly episode. There are only 14 of them, which makes for a limited run, and we’ve already gone over what a nerd I am regarding the show. Speaking of which, I’ll be doing them in the originally intended order, and not the Fox-ruins-everything-it-touches order the episodes actually aired in.
Fans of the series may notice that they don’t exactly scream ‘Verse, style-wise. I wanted to give them sort of a ’50s sci-fi vibe, a la “The Blob” or “Forbidden Planet.”
