For the third straight year, Spoke Art Gallery has turned their space into an homage to the fantastic filmmaker Wes Anderson. The show, which ran for two days this past weekend as a Halloween costume party, featured seventy-five painting, prints, and sculptures by an amazing group of talented artists who have come to admire the wacky and wonderful world that Anderson has created over the years.

This tumblr full of clever memes is exactly what it sounds like: a mash-up of scenes from Wes Anderson movies and Kanye West lyrics (and at times, lines from Anderson's movies adapted to Kanye's music videos). Both Anderson and West have an affinity for the finer things in life...

Wildcat... was kind of written in an obsolete vernacular. We love Wes Anderson, but to this day, The Royal Tenenbaums is his masterstroke, full of incredible dialogue and layers of detail that still delight today. One of the best parts of the movie? All the literary references and published works of the family, and the Criterion Collection recently posted a collection of book covers of Anderson's subjects.

For the past few years, Guillaume Ospital has been working in France as lead 3d modeler and character designer in the animation industry, as well as doing illustrations for various games, books, magazines. He likes Wes Anderson. And Portal 2. And dumplings.

If you are a fan of Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic, you probably should watch Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Louis Malle's Le Monde du Silence. Here we offer you some stills from the film (as provided by i like this blog). It's soaked in beautiful, nautical imagery and Cousteau-ian investigations of marine life. Feeling inspired to watch it yet? Good. Go do it.

For the hoards of Wes Anderson fans out there who are anticipating or have recently enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom, you can now take your obsession a step further. You thought you had shown your dedication by dressing up as team Zissou for Halloween, but now you can play Wes Anderson board games. You no longer have to wait for a costume clad holiday to enjoy your own Wes Anderson experience.

There is a ton of anticipation for Wes Anderson's return to real actors with his newest film, Moonrise Kingdom, and Anderson regular Bill Murray hosts a tour (yes, you can tour films now, especially the big-budget arty ones like a Wes Anderson film) of Moonrise Kingdom. That's right, he just sort of talks the film out to you. We like it. We might take that idea and have Robert Williams talk out each issue...

Whenever Wes Anderson is slated to release a film, many people are more interested in the art direction and art surrounding the film than the actual script itself. As is the case with Moonrise Kingdom, where Anderson and team have hired British artist Michael Gaskell to create a realist portrait of the film's 12-year old stars.

Don't pretend you are not excited just a tad. Wes Anderson is one of the leading Hollywood directors when it comes to proper art direction and set design, and his newest film, Moonrise Kingdom, is due in theatres May 2012. And yes, there seems to be a Bruce Willis x Ed Norton moment.

Being a collector of Criterion Collection DVDs, we happen to have a few of Wes Anderson's films at home that feature the artwork of his brother, Eric Chase Anderson. Seeing that Mr. Wes Anderson is a detail-obsessed filmmaker, having these simple but brand identifying illustrations as companion pieces to the films is another reason why his films are cult hits.
