Charles Martin "Chuck" Jones was an American animator, filmmaker, cartoonist, author, artist, and screenwriter, best known for his work with Warner Bros. Cartoons on the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts. He was considered as the father of contemporary animation whose career spanned more than 60 years and involved the creation of more than 300 animated films. His work was a big inspiration for our work with Furry Feline Creatives. While he will always be remembered as the animator who helped create Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Wile E. Coyote, among many others. To us, he is our mentor, hero and family. It is a great pleasure and honor for us to pay tribute to one of the greatest animator who have ever lived.
Over in the summer at SDCC we had Chuck Jones grandson, Craig Kausen, President and CEO of Chuck Jones Companies as our special guest and boy we had so much fun! We also went to the Chuck Jones Gallery at the Gaslamp District to celebrate the life and work of Chuck Jones. Click this link for more pics!
Now you may be wondering how in the world did we meet Craig?
We met through a common friend who was very so excited to share our work with Craig. It was like as if destiny was bringing both people together. Shortly after we met up, the rest was history.
