Here’s what Tim had to say about this particular print:
"It’s close now…can you feel it? The new series of Arrested Development is almost upon us. This is a glorious time."
"Last year, I depicted what is probably the most iconic location for Arrested Development- The Bluth Banana stand. But this time around, I chose to go for a location while maybe not as iconic, it’s the moment that totally encapsulates the show. If you’re familiar with the show and the scene I’m depicting here, try to explain it to someone who has never watched the show. Do it in under 2 minutes. I bet you can’t. "
"The improbably network of events and characters that led to THIS scene in Season 3 is so perfectly scripted that it ranks up there with one of the best scenes in a comedy…ever. Right up there with George Constanza pushing a Frogger machine across a busy New York street, and Larry David hanging off a rooftop, from the belly of his intern- the events leading up to George-Michael in a jet pack fighting Tobias in a mole costume stomping through a model train set as Japanese investors look on in shock would take longer to explain than it would to just show the episode. "
"It perfectly defines why this show is so great, and why it couldn’t possibly succeed with a regular mainstream audience. Again, luckily, with modern TV market segmentation and streaming content- we no longer have to worry about a mainstream audience- we need JUST ENOUGH people to care for a show to continue on."
"The title of this piece, "I Ache With Embarrassment" is a quote from one of the Japanese investors from this scene, and I can think of no better phrase to sum up the piece, the moment, and the show in general. This print features two split fountains- making it the most technically difficult print in the whole series."
