Tim Doyle - Lost

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. Check it out below. Read More »

Bernie Wrightson - Rest But In Death header

Monster fans, comic fans and art fans are likely familar with the name Bernie Wrightson. If you aren’t, here’s the skinny. Wrightson is an award-winning illustrator well-known for his work on comics like House of Secrets and Swamp Thing. Yet the thing for which he’s best known may be Frankenstein. In the Eighties, Wrightson created Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein, a seminal work in monster pop culture retelling Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in comic book form. Since then, it’s been printed and reprinted by various companies. Recently, Wrightson began to turn the images into limited edition screen prints.

The first two of those screenprints sold out fairly quickly. To try and keep fans happy (and stress-free) Nakatomi Inc. will be providing 175 subscriptions to the next five prints in Wrightson’s series. This will also include some exclusives, which you can exclusively see below.  Read More »
