Image of the Day: Stop, Look, and Hasten

CJLAYOUT-223 copy

 Original layout drawing (graphite on 2 hole-punch 12 field animation paper, 10.5″ x 12.5″) by Chuck Jones for his 1954 “Stop, Look, and Hasten”.  

In the hands of a lesser mortal, the Wile E.
Coyote drawing would just be a plate of spaghetti, but here we have the master,
Chuck Jones, exhibiting a dexterity and breadth of understanding that provokes
the lines into doing his bidding—out of a cloud of graphite emerges the
super-charged, ready-to-run Coyote.
