What if every Star Trek: The Original Series episode was a movie event? What would the movie poster look like? This was the inspiration to develop a one-of-a-kind set of images for the series that launched a franchise. Artist Juan Ortiz has created unique retro-style art with the look of a 60s movie poster, comic book, pulp novel cover or advertisement, one each for all 80 episodes.
"Capture[s] all of the boldness of the original show, with pop art coolness." (io9.com) "Retro-cool... evokes the sci-fi pulp and psychedelic pop of the far-out, space race sixties." (Entertainment Weekly) "Awesome" (MTV.com)"
Juan Ortiz is an avid Star Trek enthusiast and an accomplished artist that set out to create an art program representing each of the 80 episodes from the Star Trek: The Original Series. The artwork embodies his passion for the series, the transformational Sixties, and the visceral reaction generated from each episode.
