Finishing off a day-long series of special events in the gallery on Saturday, December 4, the Chuck Jones Gallery in San Diego welcomed PEANUTS director and animator Lawrence Leichliter. Seen here dedicating original artwork from a PEANUTS special with a remarqué (please note the 'sad' little tree next to him, so "Charlie Brown!",) Leichliter greeted several hundred collectors, including the Lemaster's (see below.)
Starting the day off was an hour long Chuck Jones Film Festival:
And after the reception for Leichliter, our very special clients were treated to a magnificent "Roast Beast Feast" at the local restaurant, Lou & Mickey's, and had the opportunity to chat with Larry in a more intimate setting.
To wrap up this wonderful day (and evening) Linda Jones Clough (Chuck's daughter) explained to those assembled why she wasn't paying too much attention to what Chuck was doing in 1966 (she was busy being a Mom to three kids, ages 6, 4, and 2. See the actual card below the photo.)
