This morning I received an e-mail from Paul:
Hey Pete, I don’t know if you have been follow the drama of the last few days on my Lost blog but I’ve been being harassed by this weird art dealer. I plan on trying to go to ABC today and get some answers,video will be coming soon! -P
Paul’s e-mail was quickly followed by a real-life FedEx letter, which I had to sign for, from Ronie Midfew Arts, declaring that “Mr. Scheer is creating this LOST-inspired artwork without” … “authorization.” You can check out the full legal letter after the jump. The website for Ronie Midfew Arts only features the cryptic message “15 Will be lost The 16th Will be Found”. More after the jump.
More bad news for Paul — Apparently an ABC intern sent him a photo of the Velvet Polar Bear Painting he presented to Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse at Comic Con, in the trash at one of the Lost production offices. Paul writes on his blog, “I know Damon and Carlton would never do this. They loved my painting. They must also be getting harassed by Ronie Midfew Arts. I’m going to find out the truth. I think it’s time I paid Damon and Carlton a visit!” I have a feeling that Paul Scheer is going to attempt to break into the Lost production offices. Video likely to follow. I have a feeling this is going to be fun.
