We know you’re packing up and heading out for the holidays. Or maybe you’re cleaning house and putting the finishing touches on all of the baking you’ve been doing in advance of your special company. You may even be one of those people who are doing all of their holiday shopping at the very last minute. Or, it’s even possible that you’re not doing anything special and just enjoying time with your friends and family. However you choose to spend the final days of 2010, everyone at Chuck Redux wants to wish you the very best of the season and a happy and prosperous New Year!
Earlier this week we came across a box of delightful sketches by Chuck Jones at the Chuck Jones Archive. Looking through them, these three really stuck out (in a good way,) but we thought maybe we should hold back on showing them until a little closer to Christmas, after all it's only November 6th, but they're such wonderful drawings that we couldn't wait. So enjoy (and forgive us for jumping the gun on the upcoming holidays!)
It is fascinating to see how Chuck Jones structured his drawings. These sketches give you an inside track on the mechanics of draftsmanship; just look at those lines and circles that delineate the reindeer's body, for instance, and the wonderful sense of the character's personality expressed so simply.
Even bears need help getting the star up on the top of the tree.
In just over 30 lines, Chuck has told you everything you need to know about the reindeer at the bottom of the sheet of paper pictured above. That's remarkable draftsmanship.
