Jeff Bridges is… THE DUDE from ‘The Big Lebowski’.
To my mind The Big Lebowski is one of the best Coen Brothers movies. It has a great cast not to mention a dazzling soundtrack and the dream structures used in the film are exceptionally good. This is my favorite one:
It is one of those movies that benefits from viewing on the big screen and I was lucky enough to see it at London’s best-loved open-air cinema at Somerset House. On that particular evening it poured with rain. We were provided with see-through rain macs which made the whole audience look like a sea of ghosts.
The reference I depicted was from an online poster and print store called ‘Poster Chase’ and I used a black pen for the background, skin tone watercolor for the face and the rest is all crayon. It was a quick draw and took me about 10 minutes in total. I really enjoyed drawing him because he really is THE DUDE.

Another great aspect to this movie is that you can play a very good drinking game (for those over 18) and it’s called ‘Shut the F*ck up Donny!’ Drink whenever John Goodman quotes this line. It is much easier playing that game with this movie than it is with Goodfellas.
