A Complete Mug 126

 No, not a reaction to the final episode but a chance to create your own LOSTARGs memorabilia.

All you need to do is send the template below to your friendly personalised mug seller and I'm sure they will be happy to send you your mug in exchange for a small donation to their coffers.

Alternatively print it on whichever personalised item you wish to, or even use it as a background.

@Zort

Woah! Awesome! I'm definitely doing this!

Zort70 said...

Thanks Ray, I wanted something to remember LOSTARGs by on my desk at work so I created this and then thought I might as well share the template.

Amy Lynn said...

Awesome!

JPL said...

Better than ANY merch that ABC is selling!!!

Most excellent job Zort. Thank you.

Will be looking for mug companies tonight.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

very kewl ! And since I'm a mug maker, with a mug press in the kitchen, I think I will make me a couple. Kewl Zort, thanks !!

Martyn said...

Getting One! :D

JPL said...

@Lisa - maybe we in the States can support a well know crafter that posts regularly on these boards? :)

Will you be selling?

Lisa-Maladylis said...

yeah I can JPL I usually sell them for 10 bucks on my site. Let me see if I can do better than that.

andalone said...

@Lisa - Yes please, I'd prefer to purchase from you as well! Please let us know.

Ray said...

@Lisa

Me three

Lisa-Maladylis said...

it's always the postage that makes me nuts. The mugs are the normal kitchen mugs yet because they weigh 16 oz. it will cost between 5.50- 8 bucks to ship. Is that ok with everyone ? if so, I will make a list and then you can send me your address (my email is in my profile) and I will get a bunch together.

andalone said...

@Lisa - sent you email. :)

Amy Lynn said...

Does anyone who downloaded the JPG have the urge to put Senet tiles on top?

comixguru said...

awesome, Zort!

and thank you Lisa! :) Sending you an email...

Lisa-Maladylis said...

thanks, I got three emails so far and will send them right out. It will take me a couple of days to get the printed page that I use for the design but then I can send them right after that. I will go for 7 per mug and 6 shipping so I can put some stuffing in to keep them from breaking. My email addy is my paypal addy Or I can send a invoice to anyone interested. If you want a Dharma beer cozy or necklace, let me know before they go out because I can stuff them in the mug for no extra shipping.

Zort70 said...

I would recommend using the PNG file, if you can print from it, for best results.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

Ok, I will use that one. Thanks Zort

maven said...

@Lisa-Maladylis: Just sent you an email. Count me in!

And a big thanks to Zort for doing the artwork!

JPL said...

Order sent for 2. Limited edition #4 & #5 of 108. :)

Thanks again Lisa!

JPL said...

@maven... see you beat me to the punch with your order. Looks like you'll be getting the magic #4. :)

And clock is ticking to win Tim Doyle’s “Hurley’s Numbers” & help a charity that benefits children & families - DETAILS HERE.

Just donated by comixguru: a LOST Live Royce Hall Program featuring a cover by DCaaPB artist: Kevin Tong. Thank you my dear!

Mark Englert said...

Woo! My Tara print shipped!

The Kharma Initiative said...

My Tara Sun & Jin print is on its way as well!

Ray said...

Mine too!

taylor said...

Awesome idea Zort!

Just out of curiosity, My "Jin and Sun" print shipped, but my Black Rock (which i ordered first) still says "Preorder". Whats the status on everyone else's Black Rock print?

seaque said...

@taylor...

My Black Rock print is still in preorder status. The prints aren't shipping in any particular order. No worries. :)

taylor said...

awesome thanks!

John W said...

Just checked and my McPherson shipped too! So excited to get my first print ever! Can anyone point me to an old post that has pointers on framing? I vaguely remember seeing a discussion about this, but since I wasn't able to get any of the 1st series prints I tried for, I didn't read them carefully. I was hoping to avoid rereading them all (tried searching for "framing" but no good results). Or better yet, can anyone recommend a good framer in the SF area? Thanks in advance!

Patrick said...

yeah, my tara shipped too! anyone know where i can buy an eric tan crash print?

benkort said...

Random Question... in the Tyler Stout print, who is looking in at the plane wreckage from the edge of the jungle? We can only see the back of his head, and I can't for the life of me figure out who it's supposed to be.

Thanks.

Weinbeeezy said...

@Lisa... count me in for a mug! i'll try sending you an email later tonight!

seaque said...

@ benkort

I thought it was Richard.

rochelle said...

uh, ebay is your best bet patrick. there's actually a few posted right now.

Scoutpost said...

Lisa- I TOTALLY want one! I'll send you my info, but count me in!

Sam G said...

The Kharma Initiative said...

The latest Dharma Drop has arrived! Thanks team jack, very kind of you!

Cosmically Yours

Lisa-Maladylis said...

I have a list of people that want mugs, if I missed you, let me know and then send me a email (you can find that in my profile) Otherwise I will go with my count of ten people wanting them.

Kyle Scribner said...

zort -- thanks, that template is very cool looking. i put together a big wooden 'frame' to display the dharma skateboard (i had it just sitting on my workdesk for a long time and figured it deserved to be shown off) in my basement and wasn't quite sure how to decorate the frame background. i ended up just painting the whole thing black, making up some number stencils (4, 15, etc) and putting those into the background. but now that i see your template, i'm going to try to figure out how to incorporate that.

Kyle Scribner said...

btw, the signed LOST poster that my college was auctioning ended up going for $925. congrats if it was anybody from here!

seaque said...

Amy Lynn said...

I may be selling my Olly Moss prints after all. Please e-mail me at roomthreeseventeen at gmail if interested.

Ray said...

Donttttt theyre pricelesssss

dylansdad said...

My Jin/Sun has also shipped.

I love the mug idea--thanks for making the PNG available.

Justin said...

My status of orders hasn't changed... still says "preorder" on both. I have an Olly Moss print order number and also ordered Sun and Jin and Not Penny's Boat on the same order. I'm assuming that my Sun and Jin print hasn't shipped because the Not Penny's Boat hasn't started shipping yet (at least that I have heard -- anyone???) Patience is NOT one of my strong suits...=) I keep compulsively checking the site for updates, but none yet. Trying to find zen... =)

Justin said...

I made an agreement with the other Justin on these boards that we would sign our name to posts to avoid confusion, and I forgot to above. So I am signing now for both...
JUSTIN TIBBET

Sorry other Justin! =)

dylansdad said...

OK--I loved the idea so much that I was inspired to customize my own mug design, using the beautiful work done here as a jumping off point. I played around with the order and orientation of some of the prints--plus I tossed in a "bonus" piece of art that I thought was appropriate, lol.

Thanks for inspiring me to stay at the computer through my lunch hour!

Ray said...

I enjoy Tara's print horizontally so much more. That's definitely how I'm hanging it this week.

Zort70 said...

@dylansdad - very nice arrangement.

dylansdad said...

I was looking at Zazzle and thinking about getting a custom DCaaPB poster art skateboard...

andalone said...

Got another shipping notice from GoMerch! LostLive Hurley - 1st print I ordered on 5/14!

Zort70 said...

dylansdad, can you email me at the admins address, thanks.

Zort70 said...

If anyone is interested in one of the Oliver Hibbert T-Shirts, you can go to

www.ltdtee.net and enter the code "lostargs" to get a 10% discount.

Mark Englert said...

Got my Tara print today and hung it... AMAZING in person, the metallic is great.

Can't wait for the rest!

Martyn said...

Thanks to Team Jack, I got my Lost Live set, I'm with Jacob AND Not Penny's Boat Tee.

Gotta say, would of bought the Not Penny's Boat as a poster if Olly did it. It's pretty cool!

Kyle Scribner said...

dylansdad -- good one! you the man.

Just Thinking said...

Thanks Zort for putting them all together-and like your arrangement dylansdad too.

A question- did anyone who ordered EW editions with the Losties on the covers get them yet? I have not- ordered two.

maven said...

Did not get my EW cover yet!

thaeagle2003 said...

i got my sun/jin poster today 7/500

andalone said...

Just Thinking - I the LOST EW covers, and haven't received them yet either.

Notsimba said...

My Jin/Sun print is #'d out of 300 not 500. Anyone else get this? If less sod I am all for making it a smaller edition size. Either that or i have a cool mis-numbered print.

Ray said...

@Notsimba

Yours is misnumbered. Mine is out of 500. Its funny how often these things get misnumbered - My Danger Cabin and Olly Crusade are both errored!

BTW this print is absolutely awesome in person. I love the metallic ink. I'll bet ChrisL can't wait! I know you're lurking over there, Chris....

dylansdad said...

I've had a tracking number for a few days, but the USPS site still doesn't show that they've received it. I hope it's on the way and they just haven't updated the tracking--I'm looking forward to getting this one and having a nice low number would be a nice bonus. Good job getting #007!

John W said...

So the Burwells are numbered out of 550 but the McPhersons out of 500?

Patrick said...

Got mine, 14/500. I was really surprised by my low number! A really great print, especially how the metallic ink blends into the rest of the image.

Amy Lynn said...

Argh, I'm annoyed that people are getting Jin/Sun prints, and the Des prints haven't shipped yet.

mtutick said...

I received my Burwell print on Tuesday, and put it in a frame yesterday. It's a little undersized, as has been pointed out by everyone.

Mine was numbered 544/550, so I'm guessing Guy kept the 1-50.

taylor said...

Yay! My Jin and Sun arrived today too!

Haven't opened it up yet,I'll do it first thing when i get home.

I'll also send pictures if people haven't done that by 5pm PST.

comixguru said...

looking forward to seeing people's pics of the sun/jin print.


and would also love a "review" of the piece... :)

maven said...

Actually got a postcard from EW today saying my order will be shipped within 30 days!

Justin said...

So other than Candidate's Cave, Sun and Jin, LOST Live and I'm with Jacob, has anyone else received any of their prints? Has anyone's order status even been changed to anything other than preorder on any of them? Just curious as the three posters I ordered all seem to be stuck in nowhere land.

JUSTIN TIBBET

taylor said...

@Justin

My Black Rock is still "Preorder"

Lisa-Maladylis said...

this is what i got to do all night... we got 5 beautiful pups during the night. I'm bushed and ready for bed lol

puppies

mungonna said...

received Sun and jin also!! WHOOOAAAAA!!! The metalics take this print to somewhere else..Jin's clthes..all metalic...Suns clothes..all metalic even in to the black...Kinda like TheStatue print, depends on angle of light and angle of view..Subjectivity of death,,a theme or motif of LOST for sure.

One thing..handle this print with care.

EWL
MEL

taylor said...

Wow. This print is AMAZING!

I'm sending pics now to admins@lostargs.com.

taylor said...

I just sent pics but got a return email that said:


Final-Recipient: rfc822; ian@zort.co.uk
Action: failed
Status: 5.0.0
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; maildir delivery failed: Mailbox disk space quota
exceeded, please try again later.


Zort, let me know If I should send them again.

CTKP said...

It seems that go merch is just throwing the prints into tubes without regard to when the order was placed. I received a Jin & Sun numbered in the 50's while an order 20 spots after mine received one in the teens.

Anyhow, it's a very nice print in person.

Ray said...

From this saturday's NYT crossword:

42d: "Lost" character Ana Lucia ___.

@ctpk

yeah, that seems about true. I saw someone here had #544 of the cave, but it hasn't sold out yet, so they are probably just grabbing whichever they feel like.

JPL said...

Morning All -

In the midst of some (as they in Boston) WICKED thunderstorms. Kind of like when the Black Rock crashed on the Island. Luckily, I do not have any giant 4-Toed Statues in my front yard.

@Justin T - my remaining prints are also in pre-order status (NPB, Black Rock, Kate & Claire, LOST). Given that this set of poster releases were daily instead of weekly as the last set were... I'd expect that we may see one poster being shipped each week for the next several weeks. I.M.O. - the entire purchasing process & shipping by GoMerch this time around is vastly improved.

@Taylor - could be that Zort's email is suffering from a system failure & overloaded. Give it a few hours & try again.

To all those that are receiving Tara's print... cool! Can't wait to see pictures.

@Ray - LOST will forever be a part of pop-culture. :)

Zort70 said...

Taylor if the files are quite large then you can send them to

lostargs@hotmail.com

Zort70 said...

CTKP - The posters are usually tubed before they are sold and then picked at random to get an address label attached.

Ray said...

Wow. The Michael Emerson dinner is already at $2500....and its only been 5 days. It goes until the 17th.

taylor said...

Ok! I re-sent the pics!

Davide said...

I thought about this for a very long time, and i decided that i can part with my Stout's LOST poster.
If anyone is interested, my email is on my profile!

Still "preorder" for my Black Rock and Moss'LOST.
I don't know if i did the right thing by buying them: i'm kinda "regretting" spending all this money for prints.

I may end up with selling these two new prints, too.. it's sad.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

Mugs will go out Monday and Tuesday so if you haven't sent payment please send paypal to maladylis@comcast.net of $13.00 (per mug) it covers shipping and mugs. I can't send them out till that's paid because I'm doing this at break even costs. If I run out I will get more after people preorder. I have 18 I got the paper inks for so far. I can get more. Thanks !! Lisa

JPL said...

@Lisa - Most excellent news. Thanks again... can't wait!

@Davide - we all have regrets on certain purchases, selling, or not being able to purchase. In the end you just need to do what's right for you now.

Quiet on the boards. We need a new poster to drop, ship, or an alternate ending to LOST to mysteriously show up online. :)

Ray said...

If you're in ny you should check out tong in the renegade craft fair in Brooklyn. I was going to go, but didn't bring a change of clothes for my jeans/long black shirt from last night on this incredibly hot day.

Ray said...

Did anyone ever find out from jensen why the website said 4 new and 4 old artists, but it turned out to be 5 and 3?

Just Thinking said...

Nice of you Lisa to make the mugs for the group.

Have no idea about Jensen, Ray- can anyone really say they do?

Did anyone else see Josh Holloway on the cover of Men's Health and think- Ha! That's our boy! I had a strange sense of pride there.

Patrick said...

Does anybody have an olly moss, locke's secret they want to get rid of? couldn't find one at any poster sites. the only locke's secret is on ebay right now.

Justin said...

Hello Everyone!

Well, hopefully this week will see more posters shipped.

In the mean time, I'll share with you a little project of my own I've been working on. I have seen others post links to their other LOST-related art projects on here so I didn't think anyone would mind. I am a photographer and decided to make some of the photos I took while on the LOST Tour of shooting locations in Oahu last year available to purchase.

Check out my blog post for the first photo and more information.

link

I will be releasing six photos total over the next few days, each one hand-signed and numbered, a limited edition of 108 for each photo.

Hope you enjoy and pass along to any LOST-ies who may be interested.

Justin Tibbet

Mugs being made....

Ray said...

@Lisa

Are they being signed and numbered ;)

Lisa-Maladylis said...

lol @Ray, I will put my sticker on the bottom and they are signed (sort of lol) I will throw in a little something else when I send them as well, just because I like to :-)

sarah_0901 said...

@seaque were you talking to me? if so i didn't receive your email. sarah

Ray said...

@Sarah

I think he meant that he left a comment so he could receive message updates via email by checking the button below.

Where Can i buy one of these from you??

Lisa-Maladylis said...

@the other Ben- maladylis@comcast.net

Thanks! Sent an email!

Ray said...

From Zynga (makes games like Farmville) CEO's comments at the Apple Event a few moments ago:

10:19 am More people play Zynga games than watch the season finales of Lost and 24.

OUCH!

Ray said...

Dan McCarthy's new print is pretty cool. If I had wall space I would go for it. Lots of glow in the dark!

http://www.danmccarthy.org/PRINT.DETAIL/99168.what.once.was2.html

Amy Lynn said...

@Ray, that is super cool and I want one. Alas....

Ray said...

@Amy Lynn

I know, it is really cool. I just don't have the space! I want to save up my art money for a couple of other things, anyway.

Did you end up bidding on the ME dinner auction?

Amy Lynn said...

@Ray, sadly, no. Next time he does a play, I'll stagedoor and offer to buy him a non $3000 dinner.

andalone said...

The status on Desmond print has changed from preorder to queued in my order history at DCaaPB! Woo Hoo!

Ray said...

@andalone

Sweeeet. Looks like its Desmond this week, then.

BTW that McCarthy print apparently sold out in like 5 minutes. Crazy!

Amy Lynn said...

Sweet, my Desmond is queued too!

seaque said...

Yea! Mine is queued too...can't wait to see the "hidden" things in this.

seaque said...

email (h-m-m-m...is this feature still working?)

Ray said...

The email thing seems to be working fine for me.

JPL said...

@Lisa - Christmas in June. Thanks for the update. Like seeing your "progress" when it comes to the mugs.

Really contemplating joining McCarthy's print fan club.

Received "You're Telling Me It's in the Trees, in the Trees... It's Not it's Inside Me" from Chris @ SurrenderArt.com - MOST EXCELLENT!

Email was a little funky, but seems like all is good now.

Looks as if 1 print will ship a week. Did not order Desmond, but can't wait to hear what you all think when it does arrive. :)

Just Thinking said...

Ray, it let me put the McCarthy print in my cart just now. I think it's fine work, but don't go for dinosaurs myself.

Ray said...

@Just THinking

It lets you put it in the cart, but then click on the paypal button to actually checkout. It will tell you its sold out. I remember checking after about 45 min of it going live and it was sold out, but looking at his facebook it appears to have sold out even quicker than that!

Just Thinking said...

Oh-OK Ray. Usually you find out before you actually try to buy.

Lisa- I emailed you and sent paypal for a mug-thanks and to Zort again too. It was that 3D view that did it!

Hey- is there going to be a friendly chat time during the England/USA game- I think it's Saturday? Or are the UKer's too serious about it to put up the antics of the Yanks?

Amy Lynn said...

Des is officially on his way, according to GoMerch. Word.

taylor said...

Did my pictures of the Jin and Sun print ever get received?

Just Thinking said...

Zort is probably asleep at the moment taylor.

taylor said...

How many prints total does everyone have out of all 28 of them?

Anyone got a full set?

taylor said...

PS I feel bad the the posters aren'r selling out. This means the artists can't sell their copies at high prices....

Martyn said...

@Just Thinking...

Sadly, us English, well me anyway, will be taking Saturday very seriously. People are planning events similar to how people planned events for the LOST Finale.

I'm sure a bit of light banter after we've thrashed USA will be fine though :p

Zort70 said...

@Taylor - Yes I think I finally have them all, thanks very much.

Zort70 said...

Right, as the auction approaches - NEW POST

Lisa-Maladylis said...

Mugs are sold out ! Unless 10 more want them but less than that and I start to loose money on them instead of breaking even.. thanks !!!

taylor said...

Cool Zort, Just wanted to make sure!
