Original charcoal on paper, 15” x 11” by Chuck
Jones—hand-signed, created for the LJE 20th anniversary “Character
Portfolio”. Chuck Jones’ rigorous training, classically
composed of drawing and painting—from tableau vivant and tableau mort—gave
Chuck the basic tools from which he was able to draw upon throughout his over
60 year career in the animated film arts community. “You birds have 100,000 bad drawings in you,”
intoned one of his professors at Chouinard.
“Start getting rid of them now.” Obviously
well past his 100,000, Chuck Jones’ twenty delightful charcoal studies of his
most memorable characters produced one of the quickest selling limited edition
portfolios published by Linda Jones Enterprises.
