Squirrel Baby On Board
I’ve wanted a *Squirrel Baby on Board* sign since I saw a photo
of one in Wired Magazine. The photo accompanied an interview
with Darlton during Season 6 and was taken in the LOST writers’
room. Someone had made a mockup of Squirrel Baby on the bulletin board.
I commissioned a Squirrel Baby sketch from Ryan Dunlavey a few
years ago during his $10 commissions. I decided to use that image
for my Squirrel Baby on Board sign (yes, I obtained his
permission) and asked Ian Knight to do the sign layout.
(If I had any skill with anything like that, I would younger,
taller, thinner, prettier in every photo you’ve ever seen of me.)
He did a fabulous job and I am thrilled with the results!
The minimum order I could place was 250, so I am donating 225
of the SBOB signs to Cancer Gets LOST as donation incentives
during LOST 2014 in Hawaii. (They’ll be available for minimum
$5 donation at the CGL event on 9/22/14) I kept the remaining
25 to send to some of the awesome and amazing friends I have
made through LOST and LOST Args.
One hangs in the rear window of my car.
I have a second SBOB on display in my
"LOST Bottle" Shadowbox.
I asked my friends to send me photos of their
Squirrel Baby On Board signs and made a collage
of the photos I've received to date.
