The LOST Dharma Stations

The LOST finale was aired last night, and I’ve been too frightened to go anywhere on the Internet for fear of spoilers. Ironically I stumbled upon FUCK YEAH LOST! a Tumblr site dedicated to the series. It was a Ronal-DOH! moment in soccer terms but I quickly skipped to page two, and then to page three where I found another awesome bit of LOST-inspired artwork.

Neil Richards, a web designer by day (and everything else the rest of the time) has created a fantastic set of posters representing each research laboratory built by the DHARMA Initiative during their time on the Island. Have a look at his LOST Dharma Stations set after the jump.

Wonderfully Retro LOST Posters

You may recall Albert Exergian’s minimal poster for the hit TV series, LOST. If you liked that, then you might enjoy the silk-screened posters by designer Ty Mattson.

Earlier on this year Mattson, a huge fan of the series, sat down to design an invite to a season six premiere party at his house, and ended up creating eight different LOST posters. From enigmatic John Locke to the quintessential eye scenes, his posters are wonderfully retro. See them out after the jump.

Creative Opening Credits for LOST

The creation of messieurs Lindelof, Abrams, and Lieber will soon come to its end. Lost will conclude in its sixth season this year, with the 121st episode being aired on May 23rd. Some couldn’t careless whilst others will be mourning it like the death of a dear friend. Some of our readers gave their opinions in the Long Lost Tarots Cards post. However you feel about the show, it has become very much a part of popular culture, with a veritable army of devoted fans.

Aside from its title screen, Lost doesn’t feature any opening credits and it is these fans who pay tribute to their favourite show by creating alternate opening credit sequences. Have a look at some of their interpretations after the jump, beware they may contain spoilers.

The Long LOST Tarot Cards

Graphic designer Alex Griendling hails from Kentucky and must like me, be pretty much obsessed by the all -consuming and awful brilliance that is LOST.

Alex has artfully created a set of Tarot cards that represents some of the main characters and of course the island. Each card is beautifully and darkly designed in a smoke and mirrors sort of way, and symbolizes each character’s essence and being. For those who aren’t sure what tarot cards have to do with anything, tarot cards were originally used for playing innocent card games, but over the centuries¬† have taken on a more esoteric and mystical function and are now used to tell fortunes. You can read all about traditional tarot decks and their uses here. As far as what tarot cards have to do with LOST, your guess is as good as mine, but none-the-less they seem to fit perfectly with the freakishly weird mysticism and twisted ideology that envelops possibly the best TV show ever made.

If you haven’t watched a lick of LOST, then (I feel sorry for you LOSER) tread carefully as there may be spoilers. See the full list of LOST tarot cards after the jump.

“Lost” and “Tron” Title Sequences Re-Imagined in 60s Style

Saul Bass was an American graphic designer best kown for his animated movie title sequences, notably working with Alfred Hitchcock on Vertigo, Psycho, and North by Northwest. Vimeo user Hexagonall pays homage to the simplicity and minimalism of Saul Bass by creating the titles sequences for “Lost” and “Tron” as if Saul Bass had done them himself. The animations are pretty cool and the accompanying music adds to the retro effect.

See the flashy title sequences below.

Desert Island Hotties: The Top 10 “LOST” Babes

Being stuck on a deserted island without hot chicks is like going to the strip club and finding out all the dancers are your cousins. It’s also like buying Penthouse Magazine to actually read the articles. Thankfully LOST provides some great eye candy to go along with the obtuse storyline.

Join Manofest as he counts down the Top 10 LOST babes of all time.

I don’t completely agree with this list. A noticeable omission is Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet) who happens to be my favourite because she radiates kindness and warmth wherever she goes.

Let us know who your top LOST hottie is.
