From Doyle-

“Back in 1989, when I was the tender age of 12, still reeling from seeing Robocop back in ’87, my parents took me and my brother to see Batman, starring Micheal Keaton and Jack Nicholson. And as amazing as the movie really was- it was Anton Furst’s design for Gotham that REALLY spoke to me. The claustrophobic nightmare of steel and brick that he created for Tim Burton’s film set the stage for the action, and made that crazy world WORK. It’s my favorite depiction of Gotham, and trumps any other interpretation of that fictional city. (Yes, even more than the Nolan films.) So, when I was asked by French Paper Art Club to produce a print for them, I knew I would HAVE to pay tribute to Furst’s vision. The red skies are my subtle nod to the beautiful Batman: The Animated Series TV show that followed 2 years later. I’m very pleased with the print, and so happy to have been a part of the first silkscreen poster series to celebrate Batman’s 75th Year!”

And this print, the newest in the series is called ‘The Sea Also Rises: The Fleet Deploys’, which also measures 24×36 and is signed and numbered in a first edition of 150. Features eye-popping florescent ink throughout the print!

We asked Doyle to share his thoughts on these prints-

The Sea Also Rises series is by far the favorite thing I get to work on. It’s been rolling off and on for 5 years now, almost as long as I’ve had Nakatomi. The whole series comes from a place of deep concern for how humans interact with their environment, and the long-range consequences of our actions today. And for whatever reason, the way my brain works means that concern comes out as Sea Monsters will rising up to take us out, to prevent further damage. These two prints were originally commissioned by PangeaSeed for their ‘Sea of Change’ series, which helps to raise awareness about several issues pertaining to the oceans, most notably the practice of shark finning.

Exodus of Turtleton depicts a city- turtle, leaving it’s post off the coast of Japan, carrying an Earth-Spirit serenely away to safety. It’s definitely one of the more up-lifting images in the series, as nothing is blowing up or being attacked! I thought a lot about my children while creating this one, and how I could use a large turtle to carry them to safety one day. Or just carry them for a few hours, so I can catch a nap.

The Fleet Deploys shows a water-witch witnessing the Hammerhead God and his children moving from the depths to unknown points on the globe. I’m not sure where they’re going, but it can’t be good news. I was a little concerned about putting the sunken ship in there, as it’s the only man-made thing in an otherwise pristine scene, but having a recognizable object gave the rest of the scene some scale. Instead of it looking like a normal sized shark and a bunch of small ones, you REALLY can feel the size of the beast.”

SHINY PUNK

Continuing Doyle’s new Watercolor portrait series- SHINY OBJECTS- Nakatomi is releasing this 2 print portrait set of the SHINIEST musicians of all time-HERE this WEDNESDAY 5/28 at 2pm Central.

From Doyle-

“For years- high school through College, I worked almost exclusively with watercolor paint. Inspired by seeing JUST WHAT YOU CAN DO with watercolor and gouache paint in the pages of Alex Ross’ MARVELS and KINGDOM COME really changed my opinion about the medium, and lit a fire under my ass to get working. As the years went by, I moved on to Acrylic on canvas and then screenprinting as my medium of choice. Well- late last year, I cracked open my old kit, and did some paintings for fun (which you can see HERE) and we released a few of them through SpokeArt as high-quality giclee prints. And the response was very large. Fast forward a few months, and we here at Nakatomi get a new film printer for our shop, and not only can it crank out large, high-quality films for screenprinting, but it’s also a high-end giclee printer as well! SO- time permitting, I’ll be releasing portraits like this when the mood strikes.

One of my favorite things to paint is metallic and reflective surfaces, and I’ve found watercolor to be uniquely suited for that task. The little surprising hints of color that creep into what could otherwise be a dull, grey steel- can really be fun to portray. So here we are- my totally fun, barely though-out new print series- SHINY OBJECTS.

I could go on and on about the music of Daft Punk, and how it slowly crept up on me over the last few years to finally take over my play-list, but hey- people much better at music criticism than I have already said it all. And the band is really, really shiny.”
