A few of you have sent in links to Daniel Joshua Rubin's web site. He is an artist who released some drawings of characters from The Big Lebowski complete with his own thoughts on those characters. He even drew the creators themselves, Joel and Ethan Coen. I've embedded the images below, but if you click them, they will take you directly to Rubin's site where you can see his thoughts on the characters.
The Jesus reminds me a lot of the style in which the characters were drawn for Clerks: Uncensored. I'm not really sure why, but maybe it's a combination of the eyes and teeth. The Dude looks very much disheveled and annoyed after his visit from the nihilists and Walter's essence is definitely caught here as he's about to spread Donny all over The Dude. I think the image of Donny here is my favorite. Steve Buscemi's character is one whom I have grown to appreciate more and more over the past few years. It's a performance that's easy to overlook or trivialize as just the target of Walter's abuse. The Coens knew what they were doing when they hired Buscemi for this role and it is one that will not be easily forgotten in years to come.
