Representation of the major relationships in all five seasons of Fringe.
Fringe Infographic - Universes and Timelines, Past and Present
So with this poster I wanted to have a man whose face had turned to crystal. With the help of some Photoshop filters I was able to figure out how to make a face out of polygons, creating a cubist effect. I’m afraid that stylistically it doesn’t fit in with the other posters, but I don’t care that much.
This episode is pretty notorious for momentarily derailing the Alternate Universe story that was being developed. To an extent episode 2.02 is about Olivia dealing with her return from the other side, and to an extent the scientist’s attempts to save his son’s life mirrored Walter and Peter, but for the most part it’s just a forgettable stand alone episode. I chose to give Night of Desirable Objects a Night of the Living Dead vibe, with the Mole Baby digging around underground, waiting to shove his hand out and claim a victim.
I’ll be making posters a lot more regularly now that summer has started.
The premiere of a season has to set the mood and story for the rest of the year, and that’s what I want to capture in this poster. Olivia is at the center of this show, and therefore her journey is at the center of each season. In the first season she is introduced to the world of fringe science, as evidenced by her time in the sensory deprivation tank. In the second season she is introduced to the secret war between the universes, as evidenced by her attempted assassination and brief visit to that universe. I wanted to try making the most realistic face that I could, which is much better than the face I tried to make at the beginning of Season 1.
It’s sort of surreal to have actually finished a whole season’s worth of posters for Fringe. I had a lot of rough patches when I didn’t think I’d actually see this through, but consistent positive feedback and excitement from total strangers encouraged me to keep challenging myself instead of quitting, and I’m really excited to get going on Season 2, so expect that to begin in the next few days. But I really wanted to write this as a thank you to everyone who has consistently supported my art, or supported at all. Thank you. Fringe really has the best fans (no offense whovians).

This is it. The Season 1 finale.
The title alone, “There’s More Than One of Everything” is so provocative and I wanted the poster to match. Sure, the twin towers could have done that, or Jones attempting to cross into the alternate universe, but I settled on the silent image of Peter’s grave. To me this was probably one of the most shocking revelations in the entire show and ended up becoming one of the most central story details. I had to depict it on one of the posters. I also paid more attention to how the typography functioned as a part of the design. I’d like to continue that in future posters.
