LOONEY TUNES ART: BUGS BUNNY, PORKY PIG, DAFFY DUCK and TWEETY


Warner Bros. Marketing asked me to draw the above Bugs Bunny art for a motion picture industry trade paper. The purpose of the image was to honor a Warner Bros. executive, whose photograph was to appear within the picture frame that Bugs is holding.

Here are more Looney Tunes drawings, some of which were created while I was at Warner Bros. Consumer Products:

Those are really great Mark! I recognize your style from many magnets, school supplies and assorted stickers.

Next to Dave Alvarez, you do some of the best LT artwork anywhere else. Only wish it were easier to find your production artworks amongst the other styles from different artists.

Chris, thanks so much for the compliment! I love Dave Alvarez's Looney Tunes art also...I'm not sure what he's up to these days.

The artwork here is really amazing and it dos kin of have a 1940's/ old school feel to it also. I know this is a little random, but Mel Blanc's (Greatest Voice Actor of All Time) vocal performance for those characters was just wonderful, unique, distinct, inspirational/ influential, and definitely and I mean definitely appealing to listen to.
