Meet Tim Doyle, contemporary illustrator, print-maker and king of ‘nerd-cool’. Drawing inspiration from a life-long love of comic books and video games, Doyle creates prints of inimitable style that incorporate cultural icons - from the music industry to art-house film - into a graphic aesthetic like no other.
‘Don’t Mention The War (Fawlty Towers)’ takes cult comedy Fawlty Towers and creates a striking print, in the detailed, illustrative style of a graphic novel. Doyle depicts Basil Fawlty, his head wrapped in bandages, one eye asquint. The guilty moose - perpetrator of Basil’s head injury - looms in the background, against a red patterned wallpaper. Doyle has transformed the 70s TV series into a Hammer horror aesthetic, with tongue-in-cheek panache. It’s a powerful snapshot, filled with painstaking detail, for a compelling piece of contemporary print-work.
