Modern Art and Star Trek™ Fans Have a New Print to Add to Their Collections
Austin, Texas – January 13, 2013 Bye Bye Robot is announcing a new poster featuring the iconic ship, S.S. Botany Bay. Khan’s ship, from the episode “Space Seed,” is the first in a new series of ships by artist Mark Brayer. Brayer’s background of magazine, comic book and book cover art unites into the style for the retro design of the new poster.
“Working with Mark and the new series of prints is awesome,” says Chris Wood, Co-Founder of Bye Bye Robot. “His unique draftsman-type style is perfect for the vintage ships, and the anticipation of the other posters, in the new series, is palpable.”
Featuring detailed line-work and vibrant colors, and printed on heavyweight acid-free coverstock, this new poster includes recognizable visuals from “Space Seed” and depicts the S.S. Botany Bay floating in space with a hint of what is to come in its near future.
The “S.S. Botany Bay” poster, under license by CBS Consumer Products, is available for purchase today from www.byebyerobot.com for $25 plus shipping.
