Image of the Day: Mowgli’s Brothers

In 1976 the last of three TV specials inspired by Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, and directed and written by Chuck Jones aired.  Mowgli's Brothers, the story of a boy raised by wolves in the Indian jungle, is a poignant and moving tribute to the power of love and of friendship.  Here is a layout drawing by Chuck Jones of Mowgli riding on the back of Bagheera the panther (graphite and colored pencil on 12 field animation paper.)
