The Art of Fan Art
“We’re making beer. I’m the brewery!” – Bender B. Rodriguez
Welcome to the world of tomorrow! The American based sci-fi series, Futurama, began it’s run in 1999. Following the life of your average 20th century Pizza delivery boy, Fry, who manages to freeze himself only to be awoken 1000 years later in 2999. The show followes he and his rag tag gang of mad scientists, aliens, mutants, robots & more. Sadly the show only made it to 2003 before getting sent to the chopping block.
Thankfully, from 2007 – 2009 we got to return to the future in a 4 part, ‘straight to DVD’ series of movies. With the help of Comedy Central the movies were broken up to create 16 episodes to air on said channel.
Here we thought that was going to be the end of our beloved adventures through time and space, but thankfully, Comedy Central proved us wrong once again. They renewed the show for 26 more episodes, finally concluding the series in 2013.
Creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen hope to eventually get the show picked up by another network but until that time we shall have to make due with the wonderful creations that come from the fans, who took the future and made it their own.

(For those wondering, a screen cap redraw is where an artist takes a screenshot from a show, movie, or game and redraws it in their own style. For this drawing, the artist redrew this screenshot from the show)
