One week later and here we are again. News is slowing down, but the fan-art is speeding up. At this point, we’re in a lull, so we’ll take what we can get. There’s just never enough Anderson news for our liking.
Here we are again, so soon:
- (Above) Hexagonall has lovingly created a minimalist alphabet with characters from Wes’s films and, of course, had to include the man himself.
- Apartment Therapy took cues from Wes twice this week: a room inspired by Moonrise Kingdom and an office inspired by the entire canon.
- A Wes Anderson-style short made the list of Mashable’s 10 Amazing Spider-Man Parodies.
- Adweek rounded up their 10 favorite Wes-directed commercials. As you would expect, his tongue-in-cheek American Express ad topped the bill.
- Design is Mine collected inspirational/aspirational images from and related to MR.
- An in-depth look by the Los Angeles Times reveals a deeply woven vulnerability and earnestness throughout WA’s films. A choice quote:
Anderson’s movies are alive with nostalgia in both content and form, but it’s their originality that makes people want to place him in a lineage and inspires others to copy him.
- In case you thought Focus Features wasn’t quite covering all the bases with their marketing strategy, all of the primary characters from Moonrise Kingdom have created Pinterest boards.
- Classic Interview:The Onion’s AV Club interviewed Wes in 1999, just after the release of Rushmore. It’s just about as charming as it could be.
