Tim Doyle RoboCop Movie Poster World Premier Exclusive

Bijou Metro and Blunt Graffix Present Robocop. Tonight at the Bijou Metro Theater in Eugene Oregon they have a screening of the classic RoboCop movie and they had Tim Doyle do a poster for the occasion.

The poster is 18x24" screen print with a signed and numbered edition of 150.

I asked Tim about the design of the poster:

"Robocop is by far one of the most influential films in my life. I saw it in the theater in 1987 when I was merely 10 years old, and it completely rewired my brain in new and dark ways. And I thank Paul Verhoven for it every single day of my life. Listening to Verhoven's commentary, he pointed out that for him- Robocop is a Jesus allegory, calling it 'The American Jesus.' And in keeping with great American traditions, this Titanium Jesus raises from the grave not for forgiveness, but for revenge. It's a bloody mess, and brilliant social satire that has yet to be eclipsed in my opinion. The design is obviously lifted from Dali's Crucifixion Hypercubus- my favorite film meets my favorite Crucifixion depiction. Two great tastes that go great together."

Blunt Graffix will have the poster on sale today at 2PM PDT right here >
