Hurley Title Card

With "LOST" just about to come to an end, I thought I'd pay tribute to it one more time before it's over.

 

I always liked the title cards at the beginning of old Warner Brothers and Hanna-Barbera cartoons. Some of them were true works of art. So here's my take on a title card if LOST was a Hanna-Barbera type of cartoon.

 

I've been a big fan of LOST ever since it premiered in 2004. I've seen every episode and I read a couple of LOST-related message boards, but even I have to admit that most of the time I have no idea what's happening on the show.

 

They crash on the island, they encounter the Others, then some other Others, then yet still some other Others, they see a smoke monster, they get off the island, they go back, they time travel and hang out in the past for a while, they set off a nuke and now they seemingly both DID and DIDN'T crash on the island in the first place. It's a lot to have to sort out.

 

At one point I followed all these developments in minute detail, but sometime during the 5th season (around the time they shoehorned Jacob and the Man in Black into the story) it got to be too much and I gave up. I'm still watching, but I've decided to just go with the flow and stop trying to analyze everything that happens, and just watch the pretty pictures on the screen.

 

As for the title card, I've drawn Hurley once before. You can see him here. Smokey of course is just a featureless cloud on the show and doesn't have a face, but I figured if there was ever an animated version of LOST, that's the first thing they'd want to change.

 

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet. The "Hurley" logo is a font, but the yellow title text was hand lettered.
