Eric Chase Anderson is an American author, illustrator and actor. He illustrated all of the maps, covers, and other packaging of the Criterion Collection editions of the films Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and The Darjeeling Limited. Not only has he helped out his brother Wes by bringing his films to life through production design, behind-the-scenes storyboard images and promotional artwork, Anderson made cameo appearances (most recently) in Moonrise Kingdom and is the voice of Kristofferson Silverfox in Fantastic Mr. Fox. Often specializing in customized maps, Anderson uses old-fashioned materials like illustration board, graphite, india ink, colored pencils, and gouache paint.
