Tim Doyle is an illustrator and print-maker working out of Austin, Texas. Born in Claymont, Delaware and raised in Plano, Texas, Doyle never really felt like he belonged anywhere.
After moving to Austin, Texas in 1999 to fulfill a life-long dream of not living in Dallas, Doyle began showing in local galleries in 2001. He self-published a diary zine, ‘Amazing Adult Fantasy’ from 2001-2003. Doyle has held many nerd-friendly jobs, including running a small chain of comic-book stores, as well as being the first art director/ lead designer for MONDO from 2004-2009.
Doyle launched Nakatomi Inc in January of 2009. That Summer, Doyle started his own screen print shop, Nakatomi Print, in which he and many other artists work out of, as well as commercial printing for clients.
Since then, he has produced art for clients such as Marvel, Dark Horse, Cartoon Network, Studio Canal, and has generally been insanely busy. Doyle also art directs poster series for bands such as Metallica, Failure, and “Weird Al” Yankovic. Doyle has had 7 solo art shows at the SpokeArt Gallery in San Francisco and New York and Austin, featuring his UnReal Estate Series of prints. Doyle had a retrospective show in London at The Flood Gallery in October of 2022.
Doyle has two children and Bernie Wrightson’s dog, and hates writing in third person.
