The Expanding Verse

I find myself working on so many fan projects at present that I can't help wanting to share them around. I'm also a big fan of what I like to refer to as 'The Expanding Verse', or the growing fan canon that comes with any great fandom. That said, Frank has agree to let me host the prop freebies here on Firefly Props. I will be posting at least one new document, form, poster, label or other printed good every week.

Perhaps for the rest of my wholly unnatural life.

Other artists and designers from the same projects will be posting some of their work as well, but those who are participating will announce themselves as we go.

This first document is a standard form for the Declaration of Dangerous goods. The form is stamped showing an origin out of the Eavesdown Docks, but I left the signature spaces intentionally blank, so that each one can be signed by you with the intention of making them unique. I went for a bold look, with simple write-in spaces and an obvious warning color scheme. This is based on an actual export form, and I was surprised to see that a form of this kind was so simple in terms of information requirements. It is 8.5" x 14" to match the standard ship's papers size. Enjoy.

Damn nice work as always, Will! Although you've stated you actually based these on real-world documents on the same type, I have to say you certainly have a knack for keeping these Verse-accurate. Good job! :D

Thank you. I sometimes forget to say thank you, so thank you. I appreciate the support and I'm glad to put this in the hands of fellow Browncoats. It also serves to keep me fired up and working on the things that I enjoy.

As my second offering, I've gone back to the New Kong Import/Export tags that I created for my Chinese Cooler project, and I've created six different tags for each. Now the tags have random number sets to show visits through the New Kong Customs House at different times.

The pdfs were created on 8.5" x 11" with crop marks.

Thank you.

Do you get a lot of garage sales up your way in the warmer months? I've found some of my best cases and boxes at garage sales. They're always weathered really nicely and ripe with personality. Plus...cheap with no shipping costs.
