Withnail & I
I’ve used my 2014 drawing of Withnail for, appropriately, a mock-up cover for Bruce Robinson’s screenplay.

The scene setting and character descriptions are hilarious, but what’s not lost is the sense of melancholy and repressed yearning that is essential to the film’s enduring appeal.
