Stories of Signal Cartel Posters by Este DeStirr

  • Arrgh ! Was trying to some of these as wallpapers for my iPhone and iPad. The darn unmovable time and date of the devices interferes with the text in the picture ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜ 

  • @Tamayo coughandroidcough

  • I must admit, I wonder why there is no drake? ;)


  • Oooh, I wanna get one for my Ares!

  • Out of curiosity, what program do you use to make these posters? They look awesome, but I'm not sure just posting pictures in Open Office will quite suffice :D

  • @DaydreamBeliever Hi there! I use a mix of programs, since I am mostly a poor.

    • Autodesk Graphic - recent investment, thanks to @Mynxee for the reccy
    • Pages - comes on Macs and good for document layout. I'm moving most of my work into Graphic but I do miss having multi-page layouts.
    • - free web-based photoshop clone.
    • Pixelmator - using the 30 day free trial right now and will be buying it soon enough.
    • custom pdf-to-png scripts sometimes

    I also use various free fonts and images I find online or provided by you guys.

  • @Este-DeStirr I am using Autodesk Graphic for all the graphic design work I must do these days...I really love it. Also a big fan of Pixelmator. I'm really glad you are enjoying using them. By the way, you can do "multipage" layouts using Graphic. Just put all the assets for each page in one layer and name the layer accordingly. Any elements common to all the "pages" I put in a "Common" layer. Then, when I want to export just one of the pages, I make only its layer (and the Common layer if apropos) visible and export. And by the way, did you know that you can use Preview to export a bunch of jpgs selected in the sidebar into a PDF? Mac comes with some powerful free (or very low cost) tools.

  • For our beloved spacemom, Special Edition poster:

    This is my Astero - Mynxee Edition

  • @Este-DeStirr That is just awesome! Imagine a custom deck of cards with 52 diff ones of these on the backs!

  • @Mynxee Um. Yes, please!

  • @Mynxee Yes! I'd buy a deck of cards like this.

  • @Mynxee Fifty... two...

  • @Este-DeStirr want some text for a heron one?

  • @Ksari-Aumer I'd love a good Heron story!

  • @Este-DeStirr all I fly are Asteros. Oh, wait. I have an Ares story from the Search for Sky. I like explo Ares.

  • I have a little quote about my Ares as well, one that comes directly from my story When The Sisters Call:

    โ€œDonโ€™t get me wrong,โ€ he replied, turning back to the High Priestess. โ€œI love my Astero, and I seriously considered bringing her for this mission. But sometimes, pure speed is what one needs, and there arenโ€™t many ships faster than Whispers.โ€

  • For Lucas Ballard, Coordinator, EvE-Scout Rescue Search And Rescue Program: :-)

    This is My Ares

    Keep an eye out for a Special Edition of Lucas' story in the future!

  • @Este-DeStirr I know it's not canonical, but is there a way we can get a pink Astero variant? I know a CEO that would get a kick out of it.

  • @Triffton-Ambraelle Well, CPPC is pretty flexible, I'll see if I can make a top-sekrit non-public version... :P

  • So, after some more playing and tweaking, I give you the Lucas Ballard Special Edition:

    This is my Ares

    And the special-special edition:

    This is my Ares

    Note: My nascent "policy" on Special Editions (color images and custom layouts) is that I'll generally do them if the pilot is in SC leadership or otherwise "notable", where "notable" means "catches my interest or fancy at the time". So please don't be offended if I decide not to do a special edition of your story, it's not personal. :)
