This piece has been in the works for a long time, but could only be unveiled now that the show has opened. It was a very hush-hush affair! Gallery 1988 contacted me a while back with an irresistibly secretive invitation to participate in a show-- no details except that it involved custom toys & had something to do with an ABC tv show. I said yes mainly because my curiosity was piqued, but when I actually got the show information, I could hardly believe my luck.
You see, I don't watch tv much at all (in fact I don't have one that works) but I'd heard so much about LOST that I'd checked it out on Hulu & I was seriously hooked! How's that for an amazing coincidence? I thought it was downright LOSTworthy!
The LOST Underground Art Project at Gallery 1988 in LA. 15 through 24 December 2009. Acrylic, text, maps & gold leaf on resin statue (statue provided by the gallery). (A news report on the show.) SOLD
Please click to see details, & forgive the focus issues... it's hard to get a good scan of a 3d object! p.s. This is just one statue-- the four views are so you can see all the details.
EDIT: For those who are coming here in 2012 from Illustration Friday, the show is long past, but I couldn't resist posting this for the LOST prompt!
