I just got back from my epic road trip to the LOST underground art show. I literally spent more time in the van than in the city of LA, but it was a blast and I'll detail the journey right here as soon as I stop seeing road markers and truck stops whenever I close my eyes. In the meantime I thought I'd share the piece I did for the show.
As you can see it's another of my film family portraits, and this time the subjects are young Ben Linus and his dad Roger from the Season 3 episode The Man Behind the Curtain. Rather than the usual frame I thought that presenting it in a packet of portraits was more appropriate since I'm imagining that the photo was taken shortly before their fateful trip to the island. An envelope is also more mysterious by nature and the leftover photos indicate that there weren't as many takers as Roger had anticipated.
I'm happy to report that the event was a huge success and my piece found a new owner. (Thanks new owner!) You can see all of the artwork if you click here. Also, Entertainment Weekly has a very informative write up of the very elaborate LOST art campaign which has been going on since summer.
