Tim Doyle Partners With Geek Art & French Paper Art Club To Celebrate Batman’s 75th Anniversary

As you MUST know by now, Batman is celebrating his 75th anniversary this year and as you can image, the love for the World’s Greatest Detective has been pouring in.  The folks over at Geek Art and French Paper Club have asked artists from all over the world to help celebrate this milestone and fans will be able to get in on the action with official prints.

Today we are sharing a fantastic offering from Nakatomi Tim, AKA – Tim Doyle.  They have chosen Tim’s piece as the debut print in their officially licensed series and it absolutely has us wanting BOTH versions.  (But alas, we are already too late to the party!)

Here is what Tim had to say about the project.  “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!”

The glow in the dark Variant has already sold out but you can still get the ravishing red version if you hurry.  Follow Tim on TWITTER to see what he will be doing next and stay tuned.  As more Batman art comes out of this project, we will be sharing it with you!
