"This print is a continuation of my 'The Sea Also Rises' series of prints, as I'm expanding the scope of the human/ nature interaction I normally portray in an urban environment into the Arctic. (And yes, I know there are no penguins in the arctic...they're also not normally 80 feet tall, either.) The idea of rising sea levels, and the animals of the sea (mythic or otherwise) coming into areas they aren't normally seen is fascinating to me. This weird, visual story I'm slowly telling across these prints of giant gods and monsters of the deep coming into the world of man as a result of our environmental decay, is by far my favorite personal project, and I'm always happy to have PangeaSeed supporting it, while I help support them!"
About The Artist
Tim Doyle is an illustrator and print-maker working out of Austin, Texas. Growing up in the suburban sprawl of the Dallas area, he turned inward and sullen, only finding joy in comic-books and television and video games.
Moving to Austin, Texas in 1999 to fulfill a life-long dream of not living in Dallas, Doyle begun painting and showing in galleries in 2001. He self-published a diary zine, ‘Amazing Adult Fantasy’ from 2001-2003. Doyle has held many nerd-friendly jobs, including running a small chain of comic-book stores, as well as designing t-shirts and art-directing the poster series for the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
Doyle left ‘jobs’ behind and launched his company- Nakatomi Inc in January of 2009. In the Summer of 2009, Tim Doyle along with artist Clint Wilson built their own screen printing studio, Nakatomi Print Labs, in which they and other artists work out of.
Since then, he has produced art for companies such as Creature Design, The Astor Theatre, ABC/Disney’s Lost Poster project, Mattel’s He-Man art show in LA, has had artwork used by Lucasfilm/ILM, Hasbro, IDW, and really needs to finish that thing for NASA. For reals. Outer space stuff.
Doyle also provided all the visuals and character, alien, and vehicle design for the adaptation of the play The Intergalactic Nemesis into a comic book/ performance Trans-media thing, which debuted as a live-action graphic novel at the Long Center for the Performing arts on Labor Day 2010. The play will be touring with Doyle’s art throughout the country late 2011-2012.
Doyle lives and works in Austin along with his wife and child, and an indeterminate amount of cats. If you’d like a cat, swing on by, no questions asked.
