A mythical view of the Simpsons‘ hometown.
The illustrator Tim Doyle from Texas presents us with his “Unreal Estate” series a very remarkable and dramatic look to Springfield’s famous places.
“Unreal Estate” is a collection of locations that many of us know and have been to on a weekly basis at times, but we can never actually visit. These places are in our memories- transmitted and entrenched there through a cathode-ray tube. Some of us have been going to these places for decades- some of these places were taken from us, way too soon. – Tim Doyle
We are especially afraid and fascinated at the same time of Moe’s tavern, the Comic Book store and the church. Also the characters are shown in a the very spooky way, most of them displayed by their shadows for example Bart Simpson or Milhouse van Houten.
The work reminds us of a Tim Burton movie. Some „Unreal Estate“ illustrations you can buy at Nakatomi if you dare. 😉
