"There Goes the Neighborhood" by Julian Callos

One of the original paintings featured in 
The Bad Robot Art Experience" 
earlier this year was by Julian Callos and
featured Ben and Oceanic 815.

"There Goes the Neighborhood"

He released the image as a print on August 15
to commemorate "815 Day".

The giclee is printed on 100% cotton rag archival paper.
Mr. Callos made the print available in 2 different sizes.  
Mine is 12" x 15".  Both sizes are available here.

I haven't framed the print yet and it is still
in the protective shipping sleeve.
But I will display it with
"No Man is an Island", another LOST/Ben-inspired
giclee print by Mr. Callos from his original painting
 in the LOST Underground Art Project.
I wrote about it here:

The Adventures of Desmond: "And I shall win this race...for love."

...and so the random encounter between Desmond
and Libby upon his arrival to the US yields him a sailboat,
"The Elizabeth" for Widmore's race.

"I thank you Elizabeth. And I shall win this race...for love."

(Mego Claire is standing in as Libby.)

More LOST Stickers/Decals

I purchased these stickers last year.
They were offered to coincide with the 
two-year anniversary of the LOST Finale.

Each sticker measures 4" x 4" and can be purchased here.


Both are very cool, but I haven't decided where to 
display them. I just rediscovered them, still in the original
mailing sleeve, while cleaning out a drawer. 
I'm really bad about stashing stuff away and forgetting about it.
The upside is the fun of finding LOST Treasures in the most
unexpected places! ie: underwear drawer.....
The stickers will join my other LOST stickers
 in the Stickers/Decal Binder. I may use one on the cover.

"The Candidates" by Joshua Budich

I've fallen woefully behind on framing the latest additions 
to my LOST Art Collection.
I framed "The Candidates" today.
The artist is Joshua Budich and the print
is a limited edition of 100.  My print is #14/100.

The print measures 18" x 24" and was part of 
The Bad Robot Art Experience at Gallery 1988
earlier this year.

The name and number and each Candidate is included
at the base of each image.

Another element of the print is the inclusive of the Lighthouse. 
It is reminiscent to me of the design by Ian Knight/zort70
the included the names of members of The LOST Args.
I ordered both Tshirt and tote bag versions of the designs.

(I am Candidate #69 and obviously rejected)

The image was also included on a custom poster made for
the LOSTies gathered together for Comic Con 2011 and
residing at "The Barracks".

The Tshirt & tote will accompany me to the 
LOST Reunion in September of 2014.

1:6 Desmond Action Figure

My friend Caleb alerted me to a custom 1:6 Desmond head
for sale on eBay awhile ago.  I don't know the name of the 
sculptor, nor who painted the head.
I purchased the body separately , as well as each of his articles
of clothing. (The blue shirt is a fail.  I bought a white shirt
and dyed it blue, but the type of fabric didn't accept the dye well.)

I call him giant scowling Desmond.
(...especially when compared to my 1:9 Mego-sized
Desmond action figure.)

"Here, mini-me. You're going to need this failsafe key."
