Withnail & I

I’ve used my 2014 drawing of Withnail for, appropriately, a mock-up cover for Bruce Robinson’s screenplay. Depending on what day it is, this is my favourite film of all time, but I what I am certain of is that it’s the greatest screenplay of all time. Life is too short to read most screenplays, no matter how good the film, but Robinson’s is a rare exception. 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.

While I’m on the subject, here’s the one-off printed edition I did of my series of portraits of characters from the film:
