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. ‘Mutiny On The Belafonte’ takes cult film The Life Aquatic and creates a striking print, in the detailed, illustrative style of a graphic novel. Keeping the palette limited to the iconic red and blue of the diver’s uniforms, Doyle depicts the eponymous Steve Zissou sparking rebellion, his back to the viewer as he faces the rest of the crew. It’s a powerful snapshot, filled with painstaking detail, for a compelling piece of contemporary print-work.
