Returning to The Black Rock 54

This is the poster I've been most looking forward to arriving (hurry up !), mainly so I can see the detail that the small representation on the DamonCarltonandaPolarBear.com website could never do justice to.

The close up pictures below from mistersh0w and The Kharma Initiative do a good job in showing this detail but I have been told it is even better in person.

Also if you did not manage to pick this up when it first went up for sale then there will be a chance to win one, go to RamHatter.com for more details.


The new poster has a couple of things in comon with the first poster Daniel Danger created for LOST in that they both have captions and a figure walking towards the main subject of the poster. On the left is the Black Rock poster and on the right is the Jacobs Cabin poster.





As with the other print there is a caption and as Mr Danger has said he personally calls his prints by this caption rather than the name given on the DCaaPB website.


Finally a picture from Ray of his picture framed with some other familiar pieces.

Third, my lucky number!

C'mon GoMerch and dispatch my Moss and Danger already! I've got money to frame them, quick before I spend it elsewhere!!!

Ray said...

It really is cool in person. This is what I want to hang in my office or study someday.

RamHatter said...

Like most of the prints, it looks better in person. The style Daniel uses with the detail is cool.

I also like the quote being a part of the print. Maybe it's just me, but I like how it adds to the print being from a distinct moment of the show.

If anyone is looking to get the print, I'm giving away my copy for free. All one has to do is enter a contest I'm doing on my blog. http://bit.ly/9QtQxe

Well- there you go- both Black Rock & Alice came today. I love the mustardy orange in Alice. Also, it seems to me that the more you look at BR the more you are able to see- like your eyes getting used to the dark. It was the same with DD's Why poster that I got awhile ago too. It's interesting-how the very,very blue turns into areas of black underneath and darker blue around the ship.

Davide said...

JT, i'm so searching the Why poster.
If you know someone who'se selling it, let me know please!

Just Thinking said...

Davide- didn't I send you pictures of WHY back when I got it? Sorry, don't see any for sale- looked on Poster and Toys site where I got it but it is out of stock.

Lol- a "ban the clan sticker" fell out of the packing for Olly's poster!

The lad has a social conscience.

Say NO to drugs. ;)

@ JT...I love the color in the Alice print too. I've had a spot on my wall ready for this print for awhile now. I'm thinking a basic black frame w/white mat.

Just Thinking said...

@ seaque- Ah- that explains all those continuity errors.

Ah-ha-ha-ha... :D

Oh, and my sister bought the "book box" from the props sale. It's very nice...heavy...with a beautiful lining.

Just Thinking said...

if you don't mind my asking- were the props readily identifiable as Lost and were they insanely expensive? I'm wondering if it will be worth even trying to get something in the auction. Though that may be totally different I guess.

seaque said...

The seller has found screencaps that may identify an item from the show...not all of them (most don't have related screencaps I think). Most of the items are reasonably priced...if they were actually used in the show is another question.

I hear that the auction prices are going to be far beyond what I would be willing to spend. Sold in lots (multiples) I bet we'll eventually see them broken-up and sold individually on ebay. That's just my guess.

dylansdad said...

So I'm still bummed about missing the Black Rock poster.

seaque said...

Wonder when Danger will release his a/p's.

Justin said...

Not Penny's Boat is "Out for Delivery" for me today! Should have a nice surprise awaiting me when I get home from work... also in the tube will be Sun and Jin!! Can't wait!

comixguru said...

Hey everyone,

I know there was a lot of talk about people getting their new iPhones, and I made this simple iPhone4 lock-screen LOST wallpaper that I thought I would share with you:

and here is what it looks like on your phone:

enjoy!

hi all i got all my 12 posters in the mail today even the charlie desmond.

JPL said...

Last man standing... or in this case... last tube delivered.

NPB is in the house.

Surprised that it is printed on dark "sea" blue paper. Should have realized that.

Some photos... not the best, but may tide (pun intended) till you all everybody get yours:

http://s31.photobucket.com/albums/c386/jlahair/NPB/

Have not "tried" the glow in the dark element yet of poster (Charlie's hand).

There is a surprise in the print that I'm pretty sure has not been mentioned yet. If it has... sorry. :)

http://s31.photobucket.com/albums/c386/jlahair/NPB%20Surprise/

Happy Friday All!

comixguru said...

thanks for sharing your pics, JPL! :)

my tube just arrived- woohoo! :)

JPL said...

Sharing is caring. :)

Poor Zort's email is full again.

comixguru said...

aw... :)

Zort70 said...

It's ok, I've got the pics JPL, thanks.

JPL said...

Zort - Okey dokey!

Had forwarded you actual files. They're pretty big.

andalone said...

@JPL Are the colors of the print really so different than the jpeg on DCaaPB site? Is looks completely different!

JPL said...

@Andalone - could be the camera. Flash was not working. Much better in person.

andalone said...

it looks great, just different - seemed to be more of an allover blue in jpeg. There looks to be more variety of color in your photos.

I can't wait to get home and see in person. I hope mine has arrived!

comixguru said...

and actually... there are a more than one surprise in the print...

Davide said...

One thing i've always wanted to ask: print or poster? :D

JPL said...

@comixguru... now I'm excited to reopen. Sweet!

@Davide... good point.

Print - a design or picture transferred from an engraved plate, wood block, lithographic stone, or other medium.

Poster - an artistic work, often a reproduction of an original painting or photograph, printed on a large sheet of paper.

I'm going with print. :)

JPL said...

Hi All,

An update on the LOST Auction Crate can be found here:

http://johnlahair.blogspot.com/2010/07/lost-auction-crate-update.html

A success :) and a not so success. :( But you all everybody have a chance to make out. Sharing the LOST love.

Also, if anyone is interested, I'm toying with the idea of parting with 2 of my prints: Eric Tan's Crash and Kevin Tong's Hatch to fund my latest obsession... backing DGPH's newest venture. Please email me at jlahair @ yahoo dot com

Happy Saturday!

Martyn said...

@JPL...

Dropped you a line!

My olly has been marked as shipped but received no confirmation e-mail. Can't remember if we ever did tbh. Still waiting on The Black Rock to change from Queued to Shipped too.

Hope all you Americans have a good day celebrating your independence from us Red Coats tomorrow! I can smell the BBQ's from here. Or my next door neighbour is having one.

JPL said...

@Martyn - yep it's time for a little celebration. We're fortunate to have buried our hard feelings & you did share Olly with us (even for a lttle bit)... so Thanks! :)

Responded back to your message.

theotherben said...

Quick question, I suppose we will have a post soon on NPB, but did we ever have a post focusing on Kate and Claire, since I suppose it's been shipped.

Swound! said...

Any UKers had anything shipped recently? Their 8 week time frame is only a week or so away from being up....

Good job we paid reasonably cheap shipping fees.. oh wait..

Just Thinking said...

Happy Monday holiday to the US Argers!

It's boiling outside- so I took the opportunity to put the Black Rock in a frame. Wow! It is just gorgeous! It is my shining favorite.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

yeah it is broiling out side, stick a fork in me, I think I'm done ! I should have gone and bought a frame for mine when I was out. But getting home soon was our mission since the trucks air conditioner is needing a recharge as well,

Justin said...

Still awaiting my Black Rock from my EBay auction -- should be here tomorrow or Wednesday.

BUT, my Not Penny's Boat arrived and I have to say I think it is perhaps the most underrated of the bunch. This print is AMAZING in person. The colors are nothing like the jpg -- much more vibrant. And in addition to the "hidden item" that JPL posted about, I have counted about five other hidden items you will only see if you see it in person. I won't list them to spoil anything for anyone waiting for their copy. I keep looking at it and finding more cool stuff. It looks great hung next to my Olly Moss. Will look even better with my Black Rock on the other side...

Justin said...

Oh, and I forgot to say I got an amazingly low number for my Not Penny's Boat print - 7/500. Awesome!

Just Thinking said...

No,no Justin-can't buy any more posters!

I signed up today on Ebay to get The Polar Bear- and really,really- that's all I need.

I ended up paying a little over the original 50$- so was happy with that. Every time I saw the bear I still thought it was neat- so there you go.

Weinbeeezy said...

A little late but as I was organizing my soon to come LOST wall and I found extra Lost Live programs... I have about five extras! Now I'm not trying to gauge here but if anyone would like to trade something small for one, like a beer coozy I got from Lisa, then email me! If nobody bites on these I'll just end up giving them away I suppose!

Zort if your interested in one, I can of course send you one!

Thanks!

Davide said...

My Black Rock will arrive today!
I need to see it :D

Black Rock is on the way to my house!
Delivering today :p

Weinbeeezy said...

Hey All! My posting doesn't seem to be going through? I've tried a few times now... My LOST wall and corner is in construction now that all of the posters have come through and I recently found extra Lost Live program books...

What I would like to do, without upsetting anyone, is trade them for little LOST goodies, like I traded Lisa for a Dharma coozy... If nobody would like to trade I will end up giving them away... Maybe Zort can raffle them off?

If you would like to work something out please email me...
