Bill Murray

How to describe a celebrity and express our admiration towards him via graphic design and illustration? That was the problem that I asked myself in the beginning of this project. First thing I did was to actually choose my favorite celebrity, Bill Murray.

 

The next step was to try and understand why I had such an admiration towards this man. After watching many of his movies overand over again, I discovered why I loved him that much. He's an elegant and brilliant yet common man. He is able to convince everyone that he basically is nothing in his movies.

This is what, paradoxically, makes him so lovable, elegant and great.

 

The aim was to pass this concept through several strips of tracing paper with different expressions and look that represent the multiple identities that this man takes.
