Bye Bye Robot, purveyors of fine art with a nerdy twist, are offering up four new Star Trek prints. The prints, now on sale for $25 each, feature imagery from The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Enterprise. Plus, Bye Bye Robot has got some new prints in store for the 30th anniversary of The Next Generation and more to come in the future.
Two new views of the Enterprise(s)
This release includes two modern impressionist-style prints of the starships Enterprise by Jeff Foster, whose work has been featured in previous popular prints from Bye Bye Robot. The first piece brings us a view of the classic N.C.C. 1701 in shades of blue, red, orange and white.
Foster’s second new piece, aptly titled “Enterprise x3”, features three different versions of Starfleet’s flagship, spanning the eras of Star Trek: Enterprise, The Original Series, and The Next Generation. This piece, along with Foster’s “Blue Enterprise”, feature his striking modern impressionist style and are created solely by the use of a palette knife to apply paint to canvas — using no brushes.
This one’s from the heart
Artist Nicole Padberg Munkdale adds her flair to Bye Bye Robot’s catalogue with the next poster in the collection. The print features fan favorite Vic Fontaine rendered in the style of a classic 1960’s Las Vegas marquee poster. Charity Wood of Bye Bye, Robot said of the work: “Some of my favorite Deep Space Nine episodes are the adventures that take place in Quark’s holosuites. To me, there’s no better way to represent those episodes, than a design that captures the color and panache of a yesteryear inspired poster featuring our favorite holographic crooner, Vic Fontaine.”
The Doomsday Machine
The final poster in this release is by returning artist Mark Brayer. “The Doomsday Machine” features the starships Enterprise and Constellation, along with other key elements from the TOS episode of the same name.
Special prints for TNG’s 30th anniversary and more from Bye Bye Robot
Bye Bye Robot told TrekMovie that they have some very special prints lined up for the 30th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation, which of course is September 28th, 2017. We can expect a series of TNG prints celebrating the show’s milestone, including a special depiction of the TNG crew.
We are also hearing whispers that Bye Bye Robot is preparing new art based on Star Trek: Discovery. While nothing official has been announced, it would be exciting if Bye Bye Robot, who have a reputation for high quality artistic Trek works, could be one of the first to bring us fine art prints from the new series.
Head on over to Bye Bye Robot to buy these new posters and many more.
