Picture of the Week-The Women Firefly Nouveau Posters

Megan Lara is an aspiring illustrator and a “huge nerd” who claims to, ” …draw way too much nouveau, but that’s okay because nouveau is awesome.” And I definitely agree, on the awesome part. You’ve probably seen her nouveau work before whether it was Nintendo Nouveau or Marvel Nouveau. I’m slightly obsessed with her work and have had several brain melts trying to decide on which of her many gorgeous designs to get. 

This weeks Pictures of the Week Megan blesses us with some shiny and gorgeous Firefly art nouveau posters featuring our favorite women from the series.

Tattoo Tuesday- Firefly

Firefly is one the best science fiction creations ever made. The insanely talented Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel and the upcoming The Avengers) is the man behind the brilliant space western. Because I was living in Germany at the time it debuted on television (I’m military brat) I only recently started watching Firefly, and of course instantly became obsessed for all the right reasons.

It was a show that stole everyone’s heart, and that Firefly fire still burns brightly in all of the Browncoats around the world. Firefly fandom is massive, and that’s saying something since the show was prematurely canceled after only 1 season. Thankfully Whedon gave us the movie Serenity, which is nothing short of amazing. I wonder if Whedon knew the power his stellar cast, led by Captain Malcolm Reynolds and his crew of misfits, would have on people? We are leaves on the wind, watch us soar.

Enjoy these shiny tattoos while singing ‘The Ballad of Serenity’ by Greg Edmonson.

I include all the information about the tattoo that was available. If you are interested in having me feature your geeky tattoo on a future Tattoo Tuesday feel free to email me at girlgonegeekblog[at]gmail.com.
