If you haven’t heard of Bye Bye, Robot then you’re in luck, we’re more than happy to give you the whole scoop. Bye Bye, Robot opened its cyber-doors on Feb 29th, 2012, this Leap Year (for a store with a time-traveling robot as its mascot, we thought the timing was impeccable). Specializing in fully licensed Star Trek artwork reproductions, posters, and stickers the new business has grown from working with a single artist to featuring five different artists and working with several more in the upcoming months.
Found not only online, but also at occasional conventions, Bye Bye, Robot has started catching the eye of some of Star Trek’s alumni. At the recent Austin Comic Con we launched “TNG25” our newest poster by artist Tracie Ching. It’s a portrait montage of 7 of the iconic bridge crew members of the Enterprise D, in honor of Star Trek: The Next Generation’s 25th Anniversary.
This poster was a favorite at the convention, with many people buying it to have signed. At one point, Wil Wheaton was asked to sign alongside the other cast members’ autographs. Not being on the poster, himself, he drew a sketch of his likeness and then signed next to that. Oh how we wish that was our copy of the poster!
With over a dozen posters to choose from, stickers, and limited edition canvas reproductions it’s a fun place to spend some time for both Star Trek fans and art lovers, alike.
