    I really do not know . . .
    I haven't noticed anyone commenting on this artwork, but am I the only one who thinks these things are . . . not good?

    Not very inspired work. Its trying to force TOS into retro/alternative art sensibilities, and its not good.

    I think...."horrendous" pretty much sums it up.

    These aren't really well done. The composition is ... lacking.

    I for one like most of those poster designs. I appreciate the notion to treat every episode like its own movie which deserves its own artwork. People around here don't seem to like the art, but I dig most of it. Different tastes, I guess.

    You are very diplomatic.

    I can't believe they want people to pay for those things.

    I don't care for the style and execution. Besides that they just don't gel with the subject matter.

    Well, I appreciate the intent, and the execution isn't bad, IMHO. It does take me back to the design sensibilites of the 50s and 60s. But the novelty has worn off.

    I think I mentioned early on that I liked these posters. It does remind me of the design of the 50s and 60s as well, and that is probably why I find them interesting. I can identify with it; at the same time, I also get why it may not appeal to others. As someone previously alluded to, to each their own.

    I don't really think they are that "bad" just I would not ever consider paying money for them. However, there are quite a few things I would never want to pay for that others buy all the time.

    I guess a good bit of people would consider me foolish for buying all the Star Trek on vhs and on dvd, so there you are.

    Most aren't very good, but I definitely like the one for The Omega Glory. May actually pick that one up. :techman:
