Bill Murray



Here's this week's entry in the Caricaturama Showdown 3000: my caricature of comic actor, Bill Murray. As comedians go, I admire Bill Murray for balancing out his slick commercial comedies with some very interesting arthouse films. Unfortunately, the only Bill Murray film I have in my DVD collection is the combination live action/animation feature, Osmosis Jones. While the bulk of the film is brilliantly animated and a clever satire on the way the human body functions (directed by Tom Sito and Piet Kroon), the live action sequences directed by the Farrelly Brothers are pretty godawful, with poor Bill Murray playing the part of a disgusting slob with a lot of gross-out humour. Not one of his better career moves, I'm afraid.

"Yes sir it's true, this man has no dick." - Bill Murray. Just one of many great lines from him.

Hahaha! Hilarious caricature! I agree with what you say about Murray, too. I think my favourite films of his are 'Lost in Translation' and 'Life Aquatic'.

This is awesome!! Love how squishy his head feels, and it's so different from the other more 'conventional' versions i've seen of him. Well done again Mr. Emslie

Stripes was terrible. Ghostbusters on the other hand - great. Good job on the artwork.

I thought it was so apppropriate that Robert Mitchum and Bill Murray appeared in the same film together. They both make their talents look so damn easy.
