A selection of original vintage production art from Chuck Jones cartoons including layout drawings, scripts, backgrounds and exposure sheets will be featured at Art Partners Gallery in Schaumburg, Il as part of their exhibit, "Chuck Jones: Frame by Frame, An Animator's Story" opening Saturday, February 5th at 7:30 P.M.
Meet Craig Kausen, grandson of Chuck Jones, as he shares anecdotes about life with his grandfather, legendary Warner Bros. animation pioneer and four time Academy Award recipient, Chuck Jones. Kausen will present a mini-Chuck Jones Film Festival that will include not only many of your favorite Chuck Jones cartoons, but also a selection of taped interviews with Jones.
This original layout drawing by Jones' 1963 short film, "Transylvania 6-5000" will be featured (graphite and colored pencil on 12 field animation paper.)
Here's a short clip from the cartoon, just to whet your whistle. If you're in the Chicago area, please call the gallery at 847-517-5757 to RSVP for the show or go online to learn more by clicking here.
