A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Spaceship

Rixx Javix can count himself, among many things, an EVE Online player, pirate, blogger, in-game event organizer, crusader against warp core stabilizers, and occasional haberdasher to #tweetfleet.

But his most recent mania is posters.  Posters featuring the ships of EVE Online.

It started innocently enough with a poster or two… and then it consumed him and he started making poster after poster.  It became a whole poster series.

Over at his site he has written about specific posters he likes, some forbidden ships, the difficulty of finding the right way to pose a Caracal, and how he puts the pieces together to make these.

The poster series has gone beyond 100 spaceships at this point and continues to grow.  The official series is available via this gallery at Flickr.

You can also see the series as part of his Flickr photostream starting here.  The photostream is worthwhile if you want to see naked versions of a few ships for use as wallpaper and the occasional special guest star… along with much more of his other work.

    Awesome and thanks for the post. I actually had this idea over a year ago and it went in a completely different direction back then. Then at some point I had the thought again that there could be a way to showcase the ships themselves without the usual backgrounds, metals, and whatnots we usually see them with.

    The ships are such works of art on their own in my opinion. They are us after all.

    Rixx has quite the portfolio, from excellent images of the corp logos of A Band Apart members, to the 1v1 comic, to a number of well-made flyers for various events. All available through EVEOGANDA.
