It’s about time! New poster in the Firefly series, this one for “Safe.” Which is, of course, the Big Damn Heroes episode. I still feel like faces aren’t my strongest suit, so illustrating four people was a challenge. Mal looks a little “Dirty Harry,” but that seems appropriate.
I’ve been attending Can’t Stop the Serenity events for a few years now, and this past year contributed as a vendor. Since about every other person there asked me to make a Pittsburgh Browncoats shirt, I decided to finally get it done. Now you can show some hometown pride and your love for sci-fi westerns.
As for the details on this bad boy, it’ll be printed up at a local shop, on snazzy ringspun cotton shirts. Men’s sizing, small through XXXL. And if that’s not cool enough, you’ll also get free shipping to anywhere in the USA (yes, Hawaii, you too). I’m putting in the order for the first run next week, so get your orders in to the Op Ink shop.
This one’s taken awhile, but it’s finally finished! You can check out the new Shindig poster in the shop.
Kind of excited about this one, since illustrating faces isn’t exactly my thing. Also, because it uses one of my favorite lines from the series (although, with less stabbing). So if you want one, pick one up here. I’ve also put in a big re-order on the first three episode posters, so everything is in stock for now.
EDIT: It looks like I’m going to be out shooting a show tonight, which means I won’t be around to change the shipping back come midnight. Which means free shipping gets extended until noon EST tomorrow!
All the cool kids are doing it, so why not? Buy any print in the shop today, and get free shipping on it. Yes, that includes my friends in the UK. What kind of prints you ask?
You can pick up any of these right here.
This one got a little dark. But hey, it’s a dark episode, folks.
I’m up to #3 out of 14 – this is gonna be a pretty long project. You can help fund it by buying a poster. Oh, did I mention if you buy one on Black Friday that the shipping is free? I didn’t? Well, it is.
You guys remember those Firefly posters I was doing? Well, there’s a new one up!
One of the many cool projects I’ve gotten to work on lately is an event poster for Pittsburgh’s Can’t Stop the Serenity event. You can find out a little bit more about the event on the City Creative blog, as they’ve been nice enough to give us some publicity.
You can also read my write-up of last year’s event. We’ve been to quite a few of these things, and it’s really a lot of fun. This year, you only need to purchase a ticket for the screening itself. So if you’re interested in checking out the marketplace, games, or awesome costumes, you can stop by for free. Proceeds from the tickets, and some other purchase-able items (including the event poster), benefit Equality Now.
You guys remember that Firefly poster series I’m working on?

I came home one day after a night class at Cal, 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. It’s hilarious, the characters are great, and while it does have elements of science fiction and traditional westerns, they’re secondary to everything else. You can still catch it on the Science channel (also SyFy, I think?), or just go ahead and buy it. So why am I rambling about some canceled TV series? Well, it’s my next project.
I’ve been doing the Word Art Project for awhile now (in 8 or so months I’ve produced 32 of them), and I’m taking a break. I wanted to work with a different format for awhile (it’s not square!) 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 (as the husband did) 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.” Enough talk, poster time.
