Since some of you have asked, here is a bit of background on my “creative” process for this site.

The site is definitely an “extra” thing in my growing list of web projects, so I try to keep everything as simple and raw as possible to get things done quickly. Here’s how it works:

1. I take notes and make rough thumbnail sketches as I watch the show.

2. Before proceeding to the next episode I write down my synopsis and select the thumbnail sketches that I will enlarge or re-sketch for the final post.

3. As you can tell, there is no refinement of any sketch. I jot it down quickly and scan it, then add a few gray washes here and there in PhotoShop for the final image. Believe me, I am as surprised as you are with the final result.

4. This site is built with the WordPress CMS and an off-the-shelf theme. (See footer for all the links to the original theme builder)

5. The theme requires 3 images. The large lead image in the main homepage slideshow, the smaller header image for the blog page and a thumbnail image for the archive.

Despite the lo-fi, non-refined, nor proofed copywriting, this is still very time consuming. I am thinking of a different approach after Season One is completed. Stay Tuned.

I am back with weekly sketch reports for Season 6. Subscribe and don’t miss a single “sketchisode.”

  1. Hi there! This tutorial looks like it’s a nice one, but it does not work for a deaf iniuvddial. Written tutorials are better suited, but no one wants to take the time to do that. Oh well!

Today is Thursday, February 19, 2009 and  I have never seen a single episode of the hit TV show “Lost.” Well that’s going to change. Starting today I am going to watch every single episode of “Lost” starting from the very beginning.

Every post on this site will be my synopsis of every show in case there are others like me out there who want to know what all the fuss is about.

Don’t know what “Lost” is? From wikipedia:

The pilot episode was first broadcast on September 22, 2004 and since then four full seasons have aired, with the fifth currently in progress, and a sixth set to be the final in 2010

Here I go…

UPDATE 2-20-2009:
I just watched my first episode of LOST. Please note that I have absolutely no clue about the series other than it is very popular. I also do not know TV celebrities so my impressions are really just based on what I see. Thanks to those of you who are now sending me “LOST links,” but frankly I don’t want my progress to be tainted by existing knowledge. Once I catch up to the current season, I will look at those other sites. Maybe.

Update 4-3-2009:

I finally finished watching Season 1. My final posts are coming soon. This project is very time consuming so I am considering a slightly different approach for the next 3 Seasons to help me catch up faster to the current season.

Some of you have also asked about my process and I will post a page on that later as well. Thanks for stopping by.

Update 5-8-2009

Dudes I’m all caught up! Stay tuned for humungous S2 -S5 update. I will go back to episode by episode updates for the final season 6.

Update 1-9-2010
OK people, I’m back. I will be starting up again with weekly updates on February 2, 2010. Stay tuned.
