Remembering Jin and Sun 55

This print from Tara McPherson was hotly anticipated as it had been teased by the artist and then the tease was removed. It got mentioned again as definitely being the next poster, but didn't show up. Then just as people were wondering what had happened it arrived as the third from last poster in the second series of prints.

As with the candidate cave I am still amazed that as I write this it is still for sale so if you like the close up pictures then go to DamonCarltonandaPolarBear.com to grab a copy while you can.

It is interesting that Taylor, who sent us all the pictures here, chose to photograph the print this way up. Tara mentioned after the print was for sale that she didn't know which way up it was meant to be as it works well in all directions, however she had to pick a corner to sign it in.



What isn't obvious from the description onthe DCaaPB website is the ink that is used on the clothes, it is metalic and sparkly, you get an idea of it from the closeup images below but you can't fully appreciate it until you see it in person.


Then the signature, and just to add to the confusion on edition sizes this one is numberd out of 500, not 550 as the candidate cave was.

Thanks again Taylor

Amy Lynn said...

Wow, nice!

Lisa-Maladylis said...

very pretty, love the sparkle in the paint. Nice poster !

Ray said...

I was shocked when I opened up my Tara tube, it really is so striking in person. I completely rearranged one of my walls to make its spot more prominent.

Have a good day, all! Best of luck to anyone trying for the Olly print! And...

USA! USA! USA!

Ray said...

and email

Ray said...

Haha, nice I called it:

ollymoss

LOST: 1. It won't be dropping before England VS. USA. 2. Five random orders get a free Alice print.

Remind me of the significance of posts that say "e-mail." I've never understood that.

Ray said...

It means that post was just so that I could click the "send followup comments to email" checkbox below my comment identity.

dylansdad said...

Got it--thanks!

benkort said...

I'm betting that those who get the Olly print today will get their copy BEFORE those who purchased via DCaaPB. Hilarious.

theotherben said...

Gosh, I'm just going to press F5 on his twitter until the link pops up. It's going to be a long day.

Ray said...

Ben,

You can wait until after the soccer game though, since it appears he is watching it!

Martyn said...

@Ray, Just Thinking and anyone else American that's interested...


You haven't got a chance! Prepare to be humiliated!

:D

dylansdad said...

Are you talking about the game, or the poster drop?

;)

Ray said...

@Martyn,

We are flying like 10 American flags right now, my house is oozing with patriotism. Prepare to be up-set!

Just Thinking said...

Hey Martyn- get ready to rumblllle!!!

Martyn said...

I'm ready. Just waiting for you to turn up to the game. Oh wait, you are there!!! Sorry, just thought they were the groundskeeper tending the pitch.

Just Thinking said...

Martyn- I was going to say something about the groundskeepers wearing Green .... OK, I'l let it go.

dylansdad said...

Olly needs to make like Rob Green and drop that poster, already.

Ray said...

@dylansdad

haahahahahaah

Martyn said...

Lmao, very good burns! Bare in mind olly is English so if he gets annoyed, he may release it at 9am UK time.

So far a good game, still amazed that the groundsmen can run that fast. Still time for England to capitilise on their awesomeness. America though.... Oooooo.......

Zort70 said...

Ooops

Ray said...

Oh man........my emotions feel tied as well. Like neutral.

Just Thinking said...

A good goalie and a bit of luck go a long way!

dylansdad said...

So I can't get Olly's Twitter page to load.

Martyn said...

Well, 1-1. Good defending from the US but England were better. Gotta feel bad for Green though, he'll be a major talking point until next Friday.

Any news on that olly drop yet?

theotherben said...

Nothing yet. Still awaiting!

Justin said...

Olly says via twitter...

LOST drop within the next hour

$128? Yikes.

Andrew said...

If anyone wants to buy either the Not Penny's Boat or Kate and Claire print for cost (or less if you buy both) email me! I bought them on impulse and I have absolutely no wall space left in my house :\

J said...

yay! got one

really pleased after missing it the last time due to time zones!

congrats to anyone else who got one

j/lostinlondon

Justin said...

@ Amy Lynn

For an AP edition of 50 from a print that sold 500 prints in less than 10 minutes, uh, yeah. $128 is a steal.

Amy Lynn said...

@Justin, yeah, you're probably right!

Ray said...

@theotherben

Did you make out okay? I know you said you were F5'ing all day. Congrats to everyone who scored one

Limbofunk said...

I'd say it's an acceptable cost in order to get one...less than ebay and the money is going directly to Olly. (Unless I get a refund on this) I've been extremely lucky getting prints Olly has sold himself...I've bought Locke's Secret, his Evil Dead poster yesterday and (hopefully) his final lost poster. 3 for 3 is an awesome record!

dylansdad said...

Should we be getting a confirmation e-mail or receipt or order number from Olly? I think I got one, but I can't prove it.

Limbofunk said...

@dylansdad: As long as you don't get a refund you're fine. He doesn't send confirmation.

Ray said...

Olly:

THere's a bit of oversell on this Lost print but I will be able to accommodate everyone.

Swound! said...

Wow - that was a stress! Even though there's an oversell we should all get the prints if he said that.

capostar said...

Lemme get this straight.. the AP is numbered to 50 or the AP are the numbers 1-50 out of the 500. The pic Olly posted looked exactly like the regular version of his print

capostar said...

ok. Is there is physical difference between the 2 prints?

Ray said...

@capostar

the prints will be the same, but the numbering will be different. If you look closely at his twitpic, you can see AP, the #/50, and then his signature. The ones from DCAAPB will not say AP and will be out of 500.

capostar said...

ok, thx

theotherben said...

Sadly, no! I was out taking a friend to his home due to a car wreck! I speed home after Olly's tweet about the hour till release and just missed it! If anyone has one, please!.... ;(

Ray said...

@Ben,
