Lost Goes Minimalist

No joke: we love minimalist posters. But a minimalist take on Lost, with its six seasons, ridiculous plot twists, and roughly 30 main characters, is no easy feat. However, the cult of Lost breeds superfans, among which Georgia-based artist Gideon is no exception. She decided to create a poster for every, single, episode, starting with the pilot from 2004.

And while we’re not convinced of the “Untitled Monopoly Project’s” merit, check out our casting predictions for the film after the jump. And no matter how ridiculous, feel free to share your own predictions in the comments… Read More
