Bill Murray - I Want You on Team Zissou (Life Aquatic Poster)

I want you on Team Zissou Illustration

So it turns out I've been posting a new(ish) piece of work on this blog every week for the last three years. And to mark the occasion (as is my custom) I am posting an image of Bill "I Don't Know Who You Are And I Don't Understand Why You Keep Drawing Me" Murray. Completists can view previous entries in this series here, here, here and here.

This year it's "Stevesie" himself, Captain Steve Zissou from Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. I toyed with the idea of making something with the Captain last year, but decided there was already far too much artwork celebrating him on the internet and anything I made would be surplus to requirements. Since then two things have changed: 
  1. There's more Steve Zissou artwork online 
  2. I don't care
So here he is. A leader fried and battered by decades of exposure to saltwater, sunshine and loss. A totem who has lost sight of the man he once was - haunted by shadows of his past and taunted by former glories.

As a captain, friend, husband and (possible) father he is selfish, negligent, arrogant and lost... But that doesn't change the fact that he is The Zissou. 

Thanks Bill - I'll see you next year.
