The celebration for Batman's 75th anniversary continues as Geek Art and French Paper Club present Gotham PD by Nakatomi Tim, AKA Tim Doyle



While the 75th birthday of Batman has been celebrated last month on the designated "Batman Day" by DC Comics and we have already witnessed a truck load of homages pouring in for the Dark Knight, the celebration of Batman's dodranscentennial presence continues as Geek Art and French Paper Club present Gotham PD by Nakatomi Tim, AKA Tim Doyle

In their efforts to continue the celebration, the folks at Geek Art and French Paper Club have called out to artists across the globe to conjure their visions of Batman, and Tim Doyle has definitely responded in kind with not one but two versions of Gotham PD with heavy influence of Anton Furst's iconic visuals of the Gotham City from Tim Burton's Batman.

Speaking to Blurppy, Doyle has the following to say for this 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!”
