An Ode to Ronald Searle

I've recently been exploring Ronald Searle's style for some character designs.

This first one is Dean Martin who plays Sam Harmon in the original Oceans 11 film.  I made a Vegas show-card for him.

These next few are characters redesigned from the movie "Big Fish", only that I changed the setting to modern day Japan.

The Siamese Twins as DJs:

The Circus Ringmaster as a gothic lolita ringmaster:

The Giant as an otaku (anime nerd):

The one-eyed witch as a traditional Japanese fortune teller:

Edward Bloom in his young form (as a farmer boy) and old form (dying old man):

William Bloom as a typical Japanese business man:
