The Grand Budapest Hotel was a 2014 comedy film by Wes Anderson. It follows the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous hotel from the fictional Republic of Zubrowka between the first and second World Wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The film was noted by viewers with its visually pleasing aesthetics.

This project began as a little tribute to the film The Grand Hotel Budapest just for myself, just for fun. I got out the cinema and thought about the many beautiful details that appeared (as in every Wes Anderson movie, of course) I didn’t know how yet, but I wanted to pay a little tribute to this awesome film and finally ended up doing a series of twenty illustrations and thoroughly enjoyed doing it.

I was just truly fascinated for the delicious staging and wanted to review the film, frame by frame, looking for those images to illustrate them with care and share so the passion on the details that is present in Anderson's movies.

I never know how to tag my work, I think is just some kinda mix of styles and references I love, always with a vintage vibes.
Well, in terms of references I have a very wide range of sources. I mean, I don’t just look at things or people related to my trade, I simply collect in many different ways everything that inspires or fascinates me.

I can’t give any advice but trust your gut. In my case, I have some kind of mantra for myself which says "work hard, have fun” and it’s something so simple and difficult to achieve at the same time that actually works for me! When I’m on a project if I don’t have both feelings I just try to avoid this path in the future. I think it’s about to get closer to the things that inspire you to keep you always motivated, and therefore, to better oneself both personally and professionally.

  1. ”There's not much in the kitty, except a set of ivory-backed hairbrushes and my library of romantic poetry, but when the time comes, these will be yours." :D Awesome movie, awesome work!
