Geek Zodiac

I don’t put much stock in astrology or zodiacs, but I gotta give some cred to this geek zodiac, created by James Wright and designed by Josh Eckert. (Click to view large)

And because the fine print is a bit difficult to read:

† This is not to say that Ninja and Samurai are the same, only that they tend to appear around the same time and often in the same stories. And yes, Jedi Knight falls under this category (but depending on your reading, Han Solo would be either Pirate or Treasure Hunter).

* Also includes those who hunt the undead.

** “Desenrascanço (loosely translatable as “disentanglement”) is a Portuguese word used, in common language, to express an ability to solve a problem without having the knowledge or the adequate tools to do so, by use of imaginative resources or by applying knowledge to new situations.” – Wikipedia

According to it I am a spy and J would be a daikaiju. I wish I were a treasure hunter instead, because it looks the most fun out of the bunch.

  1. It looks like they made a mistake; 1956 is both ninja and spy. I think 1958 is supposed to be ninja?

    • You are correct. Ninja/Samurai should be 1958. Josh and I are working to remedy that now. Appreciate all of the positive comments and repostings of this! It was a ton of fun to put together and honestly we’re both surprised it’s been received as well as it has been.

      Thank you!

      • Thank YOU for all the hard work you put into this!

        • Thank you again! Josh and I are working on a revised edition because given the prevalence of copyrighted and trademarked images and characters in the original, we can’t claim complete ownership over the image, even though the concept and design are ours. Josh has been sketching like made the past couple of days to rework the images and we’re trying to figure out if it’s at all marketable and if so how to approach it.

          I’ve been following the progress of the idea pretty closely and I can’t thank you enough for your support!

          James

  2. Jen:

    That’s awesome. Like you. I gave you an award on my blog today, you should check it out :-)

  3. K:

    I’d be a spy! Very fun.

    I’ve always secretly thought I’d make a good spy.

  4. I’m an astronaut! So much cooler than my day job ;)
