This inspired me today…


Original production cel from the 1966 Chuck Jones produced and directed Oscar-winning short animated film, "The Dot and the Line," India ink on rice paper with an gouache on acetate overlay.  

"Lines are the grammar of all art.  Even in animation, all characters are born of graceful, linear drawing.  The most important discovery I made at Chouinard, one that has been shared by every artist, cartoonist, painter in history…was the ability to live by the single line–that single, honest delineation of the artist's intent."  –Chuck Jones
