Wile E. and Daffy, by Eric

Ten years ago, in May 2010, I had the pleasure to host a couple of hand-drawn animation related workshops, under the Nemoland 2010 Award's programme, in Florence, Italy, along with legendary Disney/WB director and animator Eric Goldberg. At breathtakingly beautiful and at the same time almost intimidating places like Palazzo Vecchio and Liceo Artistico di Porta Romana.





However, the point I want to make here is not shamelessly bragging about hanging with Eric in Florence back then (what I already did, didn't I) but that Eric is a genius. He truly is. Which - finally - leads to these two line drawings of Wile E. Coyote and Daffy Duck done by Eric, here.

Looking at them feels like seeing Al Hirschfeld and Chuck Jones having a dance together.

Chuck Jones' Bulldog Mark Antony & Kitten Pussyfoot

Another day, another Jones. Two dazzlingly beautiful studio model sheets by Chuck Jones for the 1951 production of 'Feed the Kitty' (1952), showing the famous duo, bulldog Marc Antony and kitten Pussyfoot.

'Feed the Kitty' was the first of an animated short series directed by Jones using the two characters. Three cartoons focus on the dog and kitten duo, Feed the Kitty (1952), Kiss Me Cat (1953) and Cat Feud (1958). They also appear in one Claude Cat cartoon, 'Feline Frame-Up' (1954).

Ingenuity Wednesday: Wile E. Coyote, Genius

Breathtakingly lively layout drawings by Chuck Jones, for the animated short 'Compressed Hare' (1961).
"This [Compressed Hare] is the final first-run Golden Age short in which Wile E. Coyote speaks, although he speaks again in the 'Adventures of the Road Runner' featurette a year later." (Wikipedia)

Legendary Daffy Duck studio model sheet from the 1960s

Legendary WB Daffy Duck studio model sheet I treasure and adore, hanging here right next to my drawing desk. All poses are from Chuck Jones' original character layouts. Poses are from Robin Hood Daffy (1958), The Abominable Snow Rabbit (1961) and The Bugs Bunny TV Show.

Rough layout vs reference: Carl Spitzweg themed Mouseketeer Club adventure balloon ride

Every year in August, the two duck members of the local Mouseketeer Club have a jolly Carl Spitzweg themed adventure balloon ride. This year, they mounted a confetti cannon to the balloon's nacelle, for hunting paper kites in the sky.

Reference painting: Carl Spitzweg, 'Der Projektenmacher', year of origin ca. 1870-1975.

This rough layout here was one of the concept pieces I did for the Mickey - The True Original exhibition, back in 2018/2019. I didn't clean it up, finally, because I had a way too long list of pieces for the exhibition. This here didn't make it on my shortlist in the end.

C№101

This is 'Character Number One Hundred And One', or, at least, the character's final rough design. Next week, I'll tell what this is about.

Right, one thing, I've no idea what animal the character is. Probably a mousehare or harefox? I don't know, I'll leave that open ...
