Ode to The Dude: Big Lebowski Fan Art

We do hope the Dude is still abiding somewhere out there.

After all, he is the lackadaisical, shaggy-haired pacifist (played by Jeff Bridges) who defined what it means to love Persian rugs that really tie the room together, and taught us the mixology behind a sublime White Russian, as well as how to conduct daily business in pajama pants, jelly sandals, and a cloud of funny smelling smoke. He even once valiantly attempted to rescue an oversexed, apparently kidnapped trophy wife while blaring Creedence Clearwater Revival all the way.

The Dude was also pretty useful for being victimised by pale German nihilists armed with savage marmots, diffusing potential bowling-alley homicides, and getting into million-dollar mix-ups with porcine, wheelchair-bound business tycoons of the same surname.

Since Joel and Ethan Coen officially broke it gently to an entire rabid cult of devotees that there will never, ever, be filmed a sequel to their seminal 1998 film The Big Lebowski, it seems all the connoisseurs of everything dudely out there will have to subsist on manically re-watching the Blu-ray disc while eating In-n-Out Burger, wearing care-worn bathrobes, and incessantly scream-parroting classic quotes concerning the war in ‘Nam.

Perhaps this fine assortment of The Big Lebowski-themed fan art, culled from the creatively zealous crevasses of cyberspace, can offer some respite from the particularly harrowing Dudeless future.
