Tim Doyle Poster Art for THE WIRE

First of all if for some reason you haven't watched the incredible HBO series The Wire repent and watch it already. It's seriously one of the best TV shows ever created. Artsit Tim Doyle has created these two pieces of poster art. The first image above is called "This Game is Rigged" the image below is called “All The Pieces Matter".

The series was set and produced in and around Baltimore, Maryland. Created and written by author and former police reporter David Simon.

Each season of The Wire focuses on a different facet of the city of Baltimore. They are, in chronological order: the illegal drug trade, the seaport system, the city government and bureaucracy, the school system, and the print news media. The large cast consists mainly of character actors who are little known for their other roles. Simon has said that despite its presentation as a crime drama, the show is "really about the American city, and about how we live together. It's about how institutions have an effect on individuals. Whether one is a cop, a longshoreman, a drug dealer, a politician, a judge or a lawyer, all are ultimately compromised and must contend with whatever institution they are committed to.
