Anyone who knows me really well knows that I love Wes Anderson’s movies. Not only do I enjoy his directing style but I love the dry, borderline dark, humor in his films. His movies have inspired me to do a few pieces of related art. I’m sure these two won’t be the last.
This painting is of the character Max Fisher from the movie Rushmore. Max is depicted in the cockpit of a small piper plane. This painting is acrylic on canvas and measures 22″ x 28″.
Last year I started tinkering in digital painting. Technically I’ve been painting digitally ever since I got my first computer. I really used to work Microsoft Paint pretty hard. I’ve jumped up to working with Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter thanks to my awesome cousins who gave me a Wacom tablet. It took some getting used to.
This is the first digital painting I created with my new tablet. This is Bill Murray’s character Steve Zissou from the movie The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. It’s a simple portrait and a bit rough around the edges but I really enjoyed doing it.
