Moonrise Kingdom sees Wes Anderson join forces with British artist Michael Gaskell to come up with the art work surrounding the film, creating realist portraits of the young leads. Gaskell also has a series of photorealist portraits and landscapes (as seen below).
As RED writes, "The project, (inspired by a Jay Chou's song, 'Secret/不能说的秘密') took about 12 hours to finish. Coffee is quite a challenging medium to use - too little water and the rings wouldn't form easily, too much water and the rings would blend into each other, resulting in just a deformed pool of coffee. I had to also wait for the lighter parts too dry up before stamping on the darker rings, or else the rings would not be visible."
