I’ve always loved the artwork of Wes Anderson‘s brother Eric Chase Anderson, who many of you might recognize as the production designer on The Royal Tenenbaums. Not only did he make all of the rooms in the Tenenbaum house look different and unique, but he created all the drawings and paintings credited to Richie Tenenbaum in the movie. He also created the fantastic cover artwork for the Criterion Collection editions of The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums, as well as some of the inside art.
Many people don’t know this but with the Criterion Collection release of Bottle Rocket, the cover and menu art was created by Ian Dingman. A lot of people confuse the two artists as their artwork looks very much in the same style. This probably also explains why Wes has employed Dingman to create the cover artwork for his future home video releases when his own brother became unavailable. You can read an interview with Dingman in Time Out Chicago. His latest work is the cover and inside artwork for the Criterion Collection edition of The Darjeeling Limited. We now have a first look at the cover art for Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited. Check it out after the jump.
