Wanted Farscape by ratscape Wanted Farscape by ratscape
In September 2002, and after 4 seasons on the Sci Fi Channel, Farscape was cancelled. Fans of the show immediately started a grassroots campaign to bring it back (and it ultimately did in the form of a 4 hour miniseries). The "Wanted" posters were used by the fans for brochures, buttons, postcards, stickers, tshirts, etc, ...and posters. In a way, they became the unofficial identity of the campaign.

Each "Wanted" poster uses a stylized image of a character from Farscape. I limited the colors of each piece and gave them a posterized look not only for easier reproduction but to give it a more grassroots/from-the-street feel -- less slick corporate. By the time I was finished, 101 posters were completed. This artwork (above) is the combination of 9 of the very first ones created.

I love sci-fi. I only recently found Farscape (through Stargate SG-1), but it's already one of my favorites. I love these posters!

I've just started watching this series, and was wondering how much more I had to enjoy now that I'm at nearly the end of season 1. Only 4 seasons huh? How sad... :( Great artwork though, I love it!! :love:

Thanks much!

He *IS!* I've left off at the start of season 4 at this point. Can't bring myself to finish the series until I can get my hands on the wrap-up series... eep!

Yeah... Scorpy is *VERY* shudder-worthy!! :fear:

Moya's baby is so cool! Seeing Aeryn and him communicate is awesome. She's half Peacekepper half Pilot, and he's half Leviathan and Peacekeeper. I can't wait until he gets a name!

You changed Avatars while I was typing. XD

I first heard of the Save Farscape campaign from a postcard I picked up at a convention with these awesome posters on it. I even didn't know it was being canceled at the time. :)

So, I think you did your part!

Hehe, the way you made Crais makes him look almost demonic.


Damn, Farscape... best show ever made.
And it seems it just won't stay down. Resurrected for the second time now... or soon. Oh my.

these make me go all gooey and sentimental ~sigh~ they became so much part of the campaign and are instantly recognised by every scaper. you can be really proud to be the creator of these!

anyway I've got them all in my collection on my pc :D

Yeah, I hadn't looked at them in a while, so when I put these ones together for dA I kind of felt the same way. I remember being amazed at how so many scapers embraced the images and used them in so many creative ways.

It's more like the twisted second cousin to Star Trek. You know, the one who was raised in the attic, had conversations with dead insects and ate ceiling insulation.

...or maybe not. :)

Check it out if you get a chance.
