Big Lebowski Scenes Painted After Classic Artwork

Dudeism: a spiritual collective set up to bask in the glory and White Russian-stained serenity of Jeff Bridge’s lead character in 1998 comedy classic The Big Lebowski.
Well - thanks to these excellent paintings by artist Joe Forkan - now comes further reason to get on your knees and worship The Dude as some sort of slacker prophet.
Using the frames of the film, The Lebowski Cycle collection takes some of our favourite scenes and directly references classical masterpieces from European greats like Annibale Carracci and Jacques-Louis David (we’ve referenced these below in case you want to Google for comparison).
To top it off, you can even order some of these fan-boy friendly works from Forkan's website right now, which will only enhance your love for all things Lebowski.
And, naturally, Jesus features...
