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.
‘Mr Orange Dying in a 1972 Pontiac Lemens Coupe Convertible’ takes cult film Reservoir Dogs and creates a striking print, in the detailed, illustrative style of a graphic novel. We see the inimitable Mr White, as he drives the Pontiac Lemens Coupe away from the scene of action, urban backstreets and silhouetted telegraph poles lining the roadside. Mr Orange lies dying in the back, only his bloodied hand visible as it grasps Mr White’s. Poised at the instant of climax, it’s a powerful snapshot, filled with painstaking detail, for a compelling piece of contemporary print-work.
