Comic artist James Howard (@themooks) has been running themed ‘Draw’ challenges for a few years now, and I’ve always wanted to take part in one but never seemed to be able to fit it in. Finally there was a theme that I really couldn’t resist – Draw Coen Brothers Characters. I picked Maude Lebowski.
‘The Big Lebowski’ is very dear to me as I was 20 and working in a cinema when it came out. My friends and I had marvelled and become slightly obsessed with the trailer for weeks before it finally arrived… unfortunately not at our cinema. We had to go and see it elsewhere (it was way too cool for the cinema we worked at.) I was also really tempted to draw Steve Buscemi as I love his face, but I love Maude’s character and Julianne Moore’s performance… and thought not many female characters would get picked for the Coen Bros theme apart from maybe Marge Gunderson in Fargo. There have been some absolutely amazing contributions to the challenge so far, so DEFINITELY go and have a look at James’ Tumblr here:
