Seasonal Celebrations and Competition News 289

What a few months it has been, a wild ride with ups, downs and a few sideways shunts.

I don't think anyone expected, including myself, this ARG / Non ARG / Viral Campaign / Art Project to be so big and involve so many people across the globe.

It is all over, true, however just because it is over does not mean that things will stop entirely. Things will slow down admittedly, but remember to check back or follow us on Twitter to keep up with what is happening.

Coming up, as well as any follow ups to the Art project including any artist interviews we can arrange, there will be any Lost University news, and any other marketing information leading up to the final season.

We have mentioned that there will be a few prizes to give out soon, well in order to do this we want your help. As something to do during the holidays what we want is for you to send some LOST trivia questions.

The outline plan is to use these questions as qualifying questions for giveaways. So we need questions that are not obvious, but are not so hard that no one will get the answer.

Send your trivia question and the answer to admins(at)lostargs(dot)com, put the words "LOST Trivia" in the subject line, and we will use as many as we can as part of the competition. If anyones question is used they will get an automatic entry into the draw for the item being given away. If we get duplicate questions then the first one receieved will be used.

For now Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays and Namaste

Attack of The Blog Video Report

During the Gallery 1988 show last week we were contacted by Dana Vinson from the G4 Attack of the Show Blog team and asked if we would submit some questions. Well now see the result which was first posted on the Attack of The Blog Website

Memento Mori 176

Thorsten has been doing his art homework again and contacted Dan Lydersen about his Memento Mori painting shown at the Gallery 1988 art show -




Before that information was presented quite a few of us linkened the painting to the Linder Gallery and Capcom started an article on "Capcom's Lost Blog" to number the items like the Mysterious Masterpiece website has done with the Linder Gallery painting.

Official ABC LOST Vodcast

Thanks to andalone for letting us know about this video from the Gallery 1988 event last week. The video was first released by the DocArzt & Friends LOST Blog

Announcement - Statue Auction Fun Raiser 134


This is a very generous thing for Lottery Ticket to do and I am led to believe the statue will have some added value when it is up for auction. The Jay & Jack podcast is a great fan run LOST podcast which has won numerous awards.

I also want to say a personal thankyou to Lottery Ticket for this and all the hard work over the last few months it is much appreciated.

Final Favourite Poster Poll 126

So here it is the Poll of Polls the contenders can slug it out until there is only one left.

This poll is slightly different than before, you must pick your top 3 posters. These choices will then be allocated a mark of 3 points for favourite, 2 points for second place and 1 point for third place. All these marks will be added up and the final result will be published on Christmas Eve.



Any votes that contain multiple selections for the same poster will be removed, so make your vote count.

Only one vote per computer will be allowed.

LOST Closeup 1142

For a poster that is supposed to be found it is remarkably LOST.

There have been so many pictures flying around that it is almost impossible to compile them into a small space. I'll see if I can collect some together and post some more in the next few days.

Meanwhile we still have a poster to deal with, it seems quite odd posting closeup shots even before it goes on sale, but here we go.


This next image is interesting in that on top of the "T" looks like a letter F


You can see the plane in the distance in this image, we are led to believe that this is important in some way to season 6.

The heiroglyphs here seem to be the same ones that were on the Swan Countdown timer.

This image shows some of the Dharma Symbols and the words at the bottom of the poster that do not appear on the version that appears to be for sale.


These excellent pictures come from PatMC and ReverendMilo

The LOST Art of Gallery 1988 285



By this point, we have seen all of the DCAAPB prints. Here is all of the other art work shown at Gallery 1988 last night. I'm going to try to go back tomorrow, when it is a little less crowded, and get some better pictures, plus the names, prices, and availability of all the art.

UPDATE: You can find all of the featured art, with descriptions, prices, and availability at the Gallery 1988 Lost Underground Art Show blog.

Which is your favorite?

Poster16 - Possible Candidate

This picture, taken from one of the live video feeds from Gallery 1988, would seem to be the best candidate for the 16th poster in the series.
