“Lost”-inspired art has had its own weird little underground ever since comedian Paul Scheer (“Human Giant,” “The League”) presented writer/producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse with a velvet painting of them with a polar bear during this year’s Comic Con. That stunt led to a “Lost”-themed art show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, and the results are just as much of a head trip as the show itself. Here are the details on the stuffed bear pictured above:
“The Dharma Bear”
one-of-a-kind handmade plush
approx. 8 inches high
$350.00 – SOLD
*this plush makes roar noise when squeezed and has small Dharma biscuits in pouch.
I’ve got a couple more pieces thumbnailed below, but I recommend scrolling through all the works. Some of it is good, some of it is crappy, some of it is just plain weird. “Lost” is a good show, and I understand being a die-hard fan. But you know what? I’m a die-hard fan of “The Wire,” but I’m not gonna buy an oil-on-canvas of McNulty nailing a waitress. I’d accept it as a gift, sure. But I wouldn’t buy it.
