For two years, Austin based artist Tim Doyle has been proving locations on television are as essential as the characters. The Kwik-E-Mart on The Simpsons; the RV in Breaking Bad; Castle Greyskull in Masters of the Universe; these locations are as important to their show as Homer, Walt or He-Man. Now, for the third year in a row, Doyle emphasizes that point with the art show UnReal Estate III, which opens Thursday February 6 at Spoke Art in San Francisco. The artist has once again made iconic locations from popular shows into beautiful art.
In the past, Doyle’s tackled The Sopranos, Sesame Street, Downton Abbey, Doctor Who and so many others. This year, we’re proud to exclusively debut Doyle’s takes on Game of Thrones, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, Lost, Adventure Time, Six Feet Under and The Munsters. Which is only a fraction of the show.

As part of the screening put together in relation to the SXSW Title Design Competition, Ian Albinson from the website The Art of the Title Sequence put together a nice two and a half minute compendium of excellent film titles. (That features an occasional piece of television, too.) For any long-time film lover, this little video will probably elicit quite a few responses simply on the strength of the title cards on display. I queued several films to re-watch after exposure to just a few seconds of their titles.

If you’ve been reading /Film for a while, then you know my obsession with minimalistic movie poster design. We’ve featured many of these simple 2-4 color streamlined posters on the site in the past, but never anything having to do with television.

And while these aren’t as conceptually clever as what I’m used to, I can still appreciate many of these. I’ve included a sample after the jump. You can buy prints of many of these posters for £50.00 on Blanka.
