No updates from anyone yet.

Amy Lynn said...

So excited, though.

Mandy said...

looks like there will be some updates at spoiler tv forums as well arg updates
sorry if this has been posted before as this is my first post as i have been a lurker for so long

LotteryTicket said...

hi mandy. a lurker no longer. i'm off spoilertv sight for now. so if you are looking let us know what you find that's not spoilery but about today's reveal. any tweeters in that bunch?

Zort70 said...

Hi Mandy, welcome along.

Yes CerberusVenting does post to both sites.

I think he will mainly update via Twitter once he arrives at the bookstore.

LotteryTicket said...

Would a call to the bookstore be warranted?

Amy Lynn said...

Maybe in 10 minutes?

Anonymous said...

c'mon cerberus, where are ya? some color commentary please. maybe nothing to report yet.

Sayid'sgirl said...

CV just posted a twitpic of the bookstore.

Amy Lynn said...

I gotta tell you, there's one poster I don't need.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yeah it's not for me either.

RobPerrin said...

Kinda cool, but pass.

Capcom said...

The "4" is darker than the other numbers.

Scoutpost said...

I'm surprised that with a topic like "the love triangle" that that is what they came up with. I could think of several other possibilities that I would've liked better.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I got all excited when I seen the picture of Sayid. lol

Amy Lynn said...

Me too! Damn.

Good catch on the dark red 4.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks CV for getting us the link!

Capcom said...

It's a nice concept, but I wish that it was drawn better. JMO.

Amy Lynn said...

Someone on DarkUFO suggested Jackson Pollock for Dr. Artz's Mishap. Thought that would be great.

waffle said...

Yeah, it's a slightly different style, but I like it. I already own two other prints by the artist and I'm buying this one. FYI - Leia Bell is kind of a big deal in the screen printing world. She also owns and operates the store Signed & Numbered in Salt Lake City. Great store.

Zort70 said...

Not my cup of tea I'm afraid.

I think this one will be a slow seller.

LotteryTicket said...

Leia Bell likes polar bears too.

Zort70 said...

I think this is her web site

the glasses! classic.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Do you think the numbers will mean anything? Or is it just coincidence?
We have a 5 that stands out on the Dharma Van and now a 4 that stands out on The Love Triangle.

Zort70 said...

Sayid'sgirl, perhaps we need one number or letter from each poster ?

LotteryTicket said...

Zort70 file name /-V

Sayid'sgirl said...

CV has posted some more pictures from the bookstore.

Lost and Sawyer related.

Amy Lynn said...

LOVE the Oceanic magazine and the glasses!

Zort70 said...

Melissa Lossa will love the picture of all the books.

LotteryTicket said...

In-flight magazine. What's up with all the grammar/typos?

Anonymous said...

'5' also featured prominently on Oceanice mag in pic from cerberus

DoZa said...

waffle, i think everyone involved in this is big in the screen printing world. for the most part, at least. i find this print to be very underwhelming. especially considering the bar that the print set and as i'd assume the whole process is picking up steam as it goes along

Anonymous said...

LotteryTicket - don't notice any typos on this one. which are you referring to?

LotteryTicket said...

There's no doubt that they gave her this image suggestion. Writing over entrance feed #4. May need to look at episode version to make comparison.

Amy Lynn said...

CV tweeted that they did get the bookmarks.

waffle said...

DoZa - Yeah, I know, and I'm pretty excited. Based on hints about "top secret posters" I think we'll be seeing some from Dan McCarthy and Jay Ryan who are both fantastic. I can't wait. Seriously, this whole DCPB thing is right up my alley since I love both screenprinting and Lost.

LotteryTicket said...

well, I'm out. darn. have to unplug for the rest of the day.

waffle, I love this concept also, but can you please tell me where you would post this poster? Nothing says 'art' like Sawyer lifting Kate's blouse.

Capcom said...

DoZa, I'm wondering what the entire art planning process was, myself. Assuming that TPTB would know what the content of each poster is by seeing them in advance, was there consideration as to which ones might sell better, and why (for content, character, style, etc.), and did that go into the order of release. And did the artwork ideas get approved before acceptance, as well. I'm not saying anything disparaging about any of the art, I'm just curious. I'm not a good judge of what's popular these days. I'm more into classic modern art, but I do like many types of contemporary animation/illustrative and screenprint art such as what is being offered to us via these prints. That said, it's all very exciting, and does afford opening up the artists to new eyes and customers. :-)

Andrew Adshead said...

So far i've got the quotes the URLs come from but I can't place who said, I think that man was you, or when? Anyone else know, it's driving me mad?

thorsten said...

Great Job, thanks Zort!

ReverendMilo said...

"I think that man was you" Charlotte to Daniel...

nikkimatt said...

glad to see the print is getting more love over here than on darkufo.. i love it, but then again, i've been collecting her prints since 2001 when she did all the show posters @ kilby court in slc..
@ waffle: are you from salt lake too? i post as lostinslc on darkufo..

maven said...

I think I'm with most of you on passing up this poster. Strange concept!

Thanks to Cerebus for being there.

Zort70 said...

The quote is about Daniel isn't it, from This Place Is Death

Amy Lynn said...

As someone at DarkUFO said, "Horrible."

maven said...

The book store display pictures are pretty cool. Some though went into gathering the books. All the book club books are there...I wouldn't mind one of those bookmarks!

Zort70 said...

I've seen "Horrible", "Hate it", and "Not worth it"

I don't think it is that bad, I just think it won't be to a lot of people's taste.

Capcom said...

Oy, of course Rev!

Zort70 said...

Perhaps everyone that orders this print will get a bookmark ?

By the way the Hub page is updated with the bookmark image, you can download and print your own !

vud said...

You can buy now, but I won't.

I liked Locke and the Crash best and bought them.

I didn't care for Numbers and Dahma Van and skipped them.

I put this poster in between the other ones.

nikkimatt said...

here's a random question... when did we ever see the book Babar on the show? just noticed it behind the Dharma beer in the close up image on the Hub..

Amy Lynn said...

nikkimatt - Sawyer called Hurley Babar in "One of Them"

mistersh0w said...

For those who are disappointed in the style and wish it was "drawn better", remember this is art. Art can be represented in any way the artist sees fit.

The latest print indeed takes on a different style choice from what we've seen so far, but that doesn't mean it's bad, or not worth buying.

Whatevs, it's all subjective...

Carry on.

Boo said...

I hope this isn't the Jack poster I have been waiting for. Seeing how it was one of the worst moments for him on the show, I wouldn't want that as my poster.

Scoutpost said...

I totally agree it's a matter of personal taste. All of these are. There are some I like and some I don't, but I'm impressed with the artistic abilities and interpretations. They're all very cool in their own way.

I would have a problem hanging this one just because of Sawyer and Kate in the cage...having to explain that one to my kids and/or people who walked in my front door! haha I think it's interesting that they picked this to represent the love triangle. Esp. since you don't even see Jack's face. But this is all just my opinion, I think the style is pretty cool.

mistersh0w said...

@Boo - Eric Tan's "The Crash" is most certainly "Jack's poster".

Though, that doesn't mean we won't see more, but 2 Jack centric prints so far is too much for me already...

Where's the Eko love? Or Ben?

ReverendMilo said...

Boo, I hope this is the Jack poster - because I do not know how I could handle an artists interpretation of 'Jackface

Amy Lynn said...

I guess for me, the best representation of the love triangle would either be Sawyer jumping out of the helicopter (thus, making the choice for Kate) or Jack and Sawyer beating the crap out of each other in um, was it the first part of The Incident?

mistersh0w said...

@Scoutpost - That moment, when Jack sees Kate and Sawyer in the cages, is basically the first major turning point in the love triangle storyline. Seeing this breaks Jack's heart, and in turn leads to some big events.

I think the image represents the title "The Love Triangle" very well. Of course, it could have been more obvious, depicting Sawyer, Kate, and Jack more prominently, but what's the fun in that?

Zort70 said...

It's for sale now

Sayid'sgirl said...

mistersh0w
I agree with you. The art isn't bad at all. It's very good. It's just not my particular taste.
But I don't hate it.

Also art sometimes needs time to grow on you. The Crash wasn't one of my favorites when I first seen it. I kind of like it now, but now it's too late to buy it. Which is ok. I'm not going to impulse buy to get something before it sells out hoping it will grow on me.

Besides I can't afford to by to many. :)

Capcom said...

Art appreciation is subjective, that's how the art market is driven. People buy art depending on what they enjoy visually, and if it isn't overall pleasing to their personal senses, the market will reflect it. Via discourse people can discuss what art does or doesn't appeal to them, and why. That's all we're doing here, we're not bashing the artist, in fact we've shared her website here promoting her other artwork. :-)

Amy Lynn said...

Yeah, agreed. Her art isn't really my style, but I wouldn't be buying anything called "the love triangle" anyway.

waffle said...

LotteryTicket - My TV room is reserved for TV/Movie/Music posters/screenprints/etc. Assuming I buy a couple of these, this will fit right in.

nikkimatt - No I live in Delaware, but I've spent a lot of time in SLC on business, so I know the town fairly well. S&N was a pleasant find, I always loved going in there to browse. And buy way too many of the presidential prints, but that's besides the point.

Anonymous said...

that bookmark is very cool looking. wonder if it's a tiny part of a bigger print -- perhaps the final dcaapb poster?

Anonymous said...

also -- wonder if there's anything on the back of it. cerberus?

Capcom said...

Great work CV!

Zort70 said...

I've updted the main post with the pictures from the hub page.

Lisa said...

yeah not my kind of poster either but oh well. I do love my van poster lol

Zort70 said...

NEW POST to round up The Luuuurrrvvvvvvvee Triangle

Anonymous said...

Was the memorabilia at the bookstore behind glass? I don't suppose anyone tried to buy/ask for any of the things there, eh? Would be cool to get the Oceanic magazine.

Anonymous said...

Oh yes,,attempt was made concerning the availability of the show's " props" that were in the display. Unfortunately,,as we were to be informed by a underling of ABC Promotions..at about 10 minutes after store opening..the person who could answer such questions,,," couldn't make it to the event.." Apparently the un-attendee hadn't heard of the old show business saying..The Show Must Go On..and that is why he is in the Promotions dept.The U of A Bookstore manager had no idea what was what , except to say,",they showed up last nite and set up the display, that is all i know." Even with a strong hint that a certain Dharma Box Wine prop would be really nice to have..or..a certain set of broke glasses..or..etc etc..no answer was forthcoming except...please take a book mark...Perhaps these fine bookmarks will be redeemable someday for something of increased fan appreciation value..I hear, they are already being traded...I got a bunch of them if any want to trade...especially since the ABC Promotions underling let it out that this " event" was to be the only one in Arizona. Yes, Phoenix,,with your 3/4 of the whole state population and market.,you just got poo poo'ed on..by a Promotions person who doesn't even show up for an event he's to throw.

Okay,,despite the let down I experienced with this so called event..I did meet some great LOST Fans,,a Jim from a mile out of town, but from Australia. I was embarrassed for him to have come so far for so little. CV of course and Cindy, i think it was, and a few others who noticed, took note and wandered off..We made the best of it as we could; hammed it up for the Uof A Media photographer when he showed up ..etc...

Its just..if you are going to do a Fan Appreciation Event...uuummmm,,show some appreciation,,,and don't make it with concern to Where you are doing it,,but For Whom you are doing it. I understand,, that things come up in life that make plans impossible..but an underling who has no idea on whats going on,,and just walks away leaving us scratching our heads..i guess just shows how distant the Promotions dept is from Show Business..

I had a dentist appointment after this Fan Appreciation event and maybe, that the novacaine is starting to wear off, is showing. Sorry, for being "dinkum wowser" as the aussie's say......MEL

LotteryTicket said...

Mel, I'm digesting your comments. I "feel your pain" regarding dentistry. I hope nothing to serious and that your will recover.

Damian said...

Omg something finally happens here and I can't go. I wouldn't even mind just the bookmark. CRAP!

MEL, hope you can get 'back on the wagon' with this after your disappointment at the bookstore. There's still a lot more in store!

ABC/Disney and most of the locations they've chosen so far are not prepared to handle mass crowds of wild Lostfans (except for the first one at the club) so just for safety reasons that's why they're trying to keep these events lowkey and 'uneventful'. The DCPB.com site warns as much with their 'Rules of the Road'. They're really trying to discourage many people from showing up expecting something.

Too bad they couldn't at least do a little something for the folks who did show at the bookstore though. Maybe the next one will be more fun?
