Don’t delay, order today by clicking the image or here.

Chuck Jones once said, “My Bugs doesn’t look like a rabbit; he looks like Bugs Bunny. I have often told eager students that the easiest way to draw him is probably to draw a carrot and then hook a rabbit onto it.” To read more about Bugs Bunny and Chuck Jones, click here.


Dunk ‘n’ Dash — Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta
2020 Poster by Daniel Killen

As you may know, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta has been canceled for 2020. However, they are still releasing Daniel Killen’s poster, “Dunk ‘n’ Dash” for this year. They’ve decided to add an additional poster to the line-up and Daniel has agreed to continue this project through 2022.

“Dunk ‘n’ Dash”, fine art serigraph on paper, 36″ x 24″ edition of 50 Artist Proofs remarqued by the artist and hand-signed and numbered. Click the image to acquire.

“Dunk ‘n’ Dash” is a maneuver practiced by skilled aeronauts where they glide the bottom of the basket across the top of the water of the Rio Grande and lift off again without getting wet (allegedly). This maneuver has been poorly executed by the Coyote and the Road Runner is close behind him  offering a towel to dry off with in consolation.

The image is full of traditional Killen iconography, from the zoetrope-like character figures circling Coyote’s balloon, to the actual Road Runner and Coyote footprints in the sand of the river bank. The state flower of New Mexico, the Yucca, is featured as well as the state butterfly and toad. And somewhere, hidden in the design is an actual Road Runner. Can you spot it?
