LOST Corner #2

This is the second corner of the LOST room in my house. Most of the items have been displayed in previous posts. I recently relocated the Season 5 cast-signed poster to this corner. Some of the LOST Underground Art Project posters will hang in its previous location. The prints are coming back from the framer today, so I will post the 3rd LOST corner later.
*note: The vial of ash mentioned in previous post can be seen displayed near the Kate action figure.

The Loss of Sanity and Rationality

I am pretty well convinced that any sanity or rationality I may have once possessed has vanished. Case in point: I bought DIRT on ebay. Yes, you read that right. I BOUGHT DIRT! (But it is awesome dirt.) About 2 years ago, I saw a listing on ebay for a vial of the ash/dirt that surrounded Jacob's cabin in episode 3.20(when Ben first takes Locke to the cabin to see Jacob.)

Fans of LOST were vacationing in Hawaii and while on a tour of LOST filming locations, discovered that some of the ash still remained at the site. Below is picture of the site and screencap of same location from Episode 3.20. The final photo is the ash being collected by the ebay seller's relative. I have the vial on display with my LOST McFarlane action figures.

*EDIT* After seeing the first few episodes of Season 6, I feel a little less foolish for having purchased the ash. It is way more important to the story than I could have ever imagined.

Entertainment Weekly Insert - Part II

Sun and Jin are picture with a runway fading into water, with Oceanic plane skimming the surface of the water.

This is my favorite image from the insert. Sawyer and Juliet are pictured back to back, Juliet staring into the clouds...Heaven?, and water behind Sawyer.

The final photo of brochure depicts Richard and "dearly departed" characters, Charlie, Faraday,Boone and Jacob, posed on steps of ruins, in the shadow of a city.

All of the photos will require further study.

Entertainment Weekly Insert - Part I

The inside cover contains a Verizon ad and a note from Damon and Carlton:

The promotional pictures in the insert have a water/reflective theme. There are a lot of hidden images, reflections and symbolism in the photos. Jack's reflection is in the water in first picture and Claire can be seen as a reflection between Jack and Kate. The shadow of a plane rises above Kate.

A Dharma Swan logo lies just below the surface in the photo of Ben and Locke.

Taweret can be seen in the windows of the horizontal building in the photo of Sayid and Hurley.

I had a bittersweet moment when opening the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. An ad for the premiere of LOST The Final Season stared back at me. It is really going to be over in just a few months.

The issue also contained an really beautifly done insert. Below is the cover (front and back) I will scan and post the inside pages in the next few entries.

Geek Chic Dharma Dining


I was inspired by the Shawarma Tshirt to make some dining linens. I already had the Dharma glassware (detailed in earlier post). I used the Chang design from the LOST Underground Art Project reveal in Chicago's 44th Ward Dinner Party as image for the napkin. I downloaded the cutlery silhouettes and Dharma logo for the placemat. I made 4 place settings using iron-on transfers of images. I plan on using these on LOST Tuesdays. I am waiting on a Dharma drop to restock the pantry. *You can see a little bit of poster #2, Locke's Secret by Olly Moss and You All, Everybody by Jim MacLeod in the background.

Shawarma Tshirt

This was the featured design at TeeFury a couple of weeks ago. Mine was delivered yesterday. The design inspired me to create the items in my next post.

I <3 My Shih-Tzu


This is a Tshirt from the the seventh reveal of The LOST Underground Art Project. The reveal was at Rusty's Discount Pet Center in Studio City, CA. The url for the poster sale was printed inside the neck of the Tshirt. The shirt is a replica of the one Hurley purchased from the convenience store in the Season 5 episode "The Lie". I framed the shirt as a memento of the DCaaPB experience. It was acquired from someone who attended the reveal and later became a close friend. Thanks Alice!
