Each month, StarTrek.com has been posting some neat, retro looking art prints inspired by the Enterprise and company from artist Juan Ortiz. Four new prints are revealed each month, going on sale on the first of the month... But lucky you, we've got a look at two of those prints before they go live later today.
Here's the official description of the project:
Influenced by psychedelic bands like The Beatles and Grateful Dead, minimalist artists, and classic pulp movie posters, artist Juan Ortiz designed these retro, often trippy images with Star Trek characters and allusions, recalling some of the more visceral elements of The Original Series and the era. Ortiz’s interpretations are uniquely stylized to reflect cultural prints and graphics developed and made famous in the 1960s.
And here's the art! If you want one of the 18 x 24 inch prints, you can head to StarTrek.com on October 1st.

Roger Deakins is the director of photography on Skyfall, but seeing as his skills appear to be restricted to stuff above the waterline, he needs a counterpart for the wet stuff. That’s where Mike Valentine comes in.
In this latest production vlog, Valentine and various other members of the team explain what it takes to stage a James Bond action sequence underwater.
We see Bond plunge into water after taking a bullet in the trailers, but he’s not dressed the same as in this sequence, so this seems to come later. Add to that the stuff we’ve seen of him hanging out at the hotel pool and I think we’re on for the wettest Bond since For Your Eyes Only.
Before Bleeding Cool, there was TRIPWIRE magazine. In 2012, it celebrates its 20th anniversary and so it’s crowd funding at Unbound (www.unbound.co.uk/books/43) to get a lavish hardcover edition published to commemorate this as well as doing a regular paperback through Diamond Distributors.
