“Make YOUR Banana Stand” - the latest screen print by Austin, TX-based artist Tim Doyle, part of his ongoing “UnReal Estate” series of pop culture prints.
Taken from Arrested Development Season 3, “Make YOUR Banana Stand” is a hilarious reference to Gob’s failed competitive venture.
Limited to only 150 copies, each signed and numbered by the artist. View the entire UnReal Estate series here.
Here’s what the artist has to say about the release:
“The idea behind this one was to mimic what is essentially a running kind of joke on AD- the zoom-out, pull-away gag, showing the same scene from a different angle, or slowly revealing the entirety of a scene and the actors present- for comedic effect. My hope is that the people who own the original Banana Stand print from last year’s show will put this one right next to it- causing general confusion and awkward questions. This was ALMOST the print I did for this year’s UnReal Estate 2 show, but decided to go with the Model Home instead. But after slamming Season 4 into my brain, and it’s very un-traditional structure- retreading the same material time and again from different perspectives, GOB’s Banana Shack just made more sense to me. I did in fact re-draw the left side of the print by hand, re-tracing my own steps from almost 2 years previous. Which made me think about show-revivals and how set builders have to re-trace their steps and plans to resurrect a show like this- to make everything the same. SAME. ANYWAY- I could ramble, but I believe that would be a huge mistake.”
