Inktober 2017 - Day 3 - Richie Tenenbaum

Day 3 - Richie Tenenbaum (Luke Wilson)
Chosen Theme - Famous Film/Television personalities

I love all Wes Anderson's films, but The Royal Tenenbaums is amongst my favourites. His films are all a cross between what feels like a well-curated art show, and a stage play, but are definitely made for the big screen with all the perfectly timed, slow-motion shots which are set to the best rock songs of our past.

It was easy to do a caricature of Richie Tenenbaum because Wes has already done the job! Wes Anderson, often working together with co-writer Owen Wilson, creates these perfectly crafted and compelling characters that are so well defined in personality, along with Anderson's distinct visual film style, that it makes the illustrated caricature a snap.
