The Chuck Jones Gallery is pleased to present a new artist, Daniel Killen, to our collection. A local Southern Californian, Killen has worked in animation at Warner Bros. and DreamWorks on such features as “Space Jam,” “The Iron Giant,” and “Spirit: The Stallion of the Cimarron.” He’s recently created works for the gallery based on the Warner Bros. Classic Films, “The Wizard of Oz” and “A Christmas Story.”
Today, we’re releasing his first edition that pays homage to the legacy of Chuck Jones, “A Still Animated Life.” This fine art reproduction on canvas measures 18″ x 24″ unframed and has been created in an edition of 40 examples with 15 hand-embellished Artist Proofs. Pre-publication pricing of only $395.00 unframed for a limited time. This image takes a unconventional look at the cartoon characters made famous by Chuck Jones. Look closely to find your favorites cavorting on the picture plane. (Hint: They’re just a “shadow” of their former selves.)
Working in both traditional media and digital, Killen’s work reflects his consummate understanding of character and design. This, coupled with his droll wit and sly look at the predicaments and delights of daily life, make him an artist to watch.
