Ken Taylor doing the smoke monster destroying the temple would be pretty cool.

Mccarthy maybe a panoramic of Jacob and MIB sitting on the log under the giant tree lobbing not-so-passive aggressive threats at each other (although I like the idea of him doing the lighthouse and the bluffs as well)

There was a link I believe on here of a Jin/Sun print that I believe was McPherson's....or maybe not, but it was two outstretched hands reaching for each other underwater. Am I right or was this someone else's work? :?

Taylor doing that smokey print would be nice, just can't see him re-hashing that ground again.

Gotta think that there is gonna be a Jacob/MIB print at some point, as they are essentially why everyone is on the island.

I do believe we are going to get Tara McPherson for the sub explosion.

I would love to see Dan McCarthy do the Lighthouse or Ken Taylor do the Temple. Not sure what Olly Moss or Eric Tan might do to complement their original posters, but I would love to find out. I feel like Tyler Stout's oversized ensemble approach just won't happen twice.

I was not impressed with Stout's first Lost poster...I thought it lacked....something.... *shrug*

And I don't like this newest one either, an easy pass for me...this is a prime example of the different types of people buying these prints...I would NEVER put this on my wall, and thus, will not buy it...but there are those who buy just to get every Lost poster released, or because they think it will increase in value substantially (it won't)...nothing wrong with either of those, of course, but I do not buy posters that I would not hang on my wall...

And the fact that this poster is still available after 4 hours speaks volumes, I think...

from lostArgs:
If you keep clicking add to cart, it will add multiple quantities of the poster. You can keep clicking it pretty much as fast as you can click and it will keep upping the # in your cart. Click a hundred times, check your cart to see if there is a message that there aren't enough (It will appear right above where it says "Your Shopping Cart") and say "Sorry, There is only 141 left in stock, please change your quantity for item #2880 and continue with check out."

BTW - there are only 141 left now ;)

I don't understand how people can like or dislike a print from a jpeg on a computer??? If you have ever seen Mr. Burwell's work up close and personal, you might have a different opinion. But then again, you might not.

This was a no-brainer purchase for me. The colors, and illustration look great. Can't wait to see it!

oooooook....

Look, I can appreciate the idea that some art looks better in person (even "most" art), but I assure you, this print does nothing for me, and I don't think seeing it in person would help that...

Like I said, art is in the eye of the beholder...I loved the Danger print yesterday (and bought it), but will hold my money for the next one (perhaps)...

It's been pretty clear Losties/newbies/people with little experience on the poster scene just don't seem to get Guy's distinctive style. It's nothing new art like Mccarthy's and Danger's, which often depicts a nature scene, allows for easier landmarks and results in being much more accessible to the untrained eye. Long time members who've known the scene for a while, ''who've seen them all'', have almost unanimously commented on how Guy's contribution is amazing because their pack of knowledge is wider imo. You got to give credit to someone who's the only one to do it like he does, especially when it's so well executed. Unique style, cleverness of the composition, spot on execution, bad-ass poster imo.
