Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
A while back we told you about artist Ty Mattson’s rather stunning, gorgeously retro Lost-inspired art, created in part as invitations for a Season Six premiere party. Apparently we’re not the only people who dug ‘em: ABC is now selling merchandise featuring Mattson’s designs in its official Lost store, including silkscreened prints, t-shirts, hoodies, tote bags, mugs, mousepads, even skateboard decks. Looks like even showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are getting in on the act…
The Island isn’t done with us yet! Only a few episodes remain for the much-loved series Lost, and that’s meant a veritable submarine-full of artistic tributes around the Internet. Artist and designer Ty Mattson has created some of the coolest I’ve seen so far.
The piece above is from Mattson’s series “Season 6 in Black and White,” featuring an image that sums up each episode, posted the day after it airs. The poster below is one of eight retro-tinged designs Mattson came up with for Season Six premiere party invitations. Keep them coming, artists of the world!
