    Description

    Chuck Jones - The Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote Color Sketch (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). In Chuck Jones' book, Chuck Amuck: The Life and Times of an Animated Cartoonist, he writes about certain rules for making a Road Runner and Coyote cartoon. One is "Whenever possible, make gravity the coyote's greatest enemy. For example, falling off a cliff." Here is a Chuck Jones Road Runner rule in plain sight! This is a fantastic one-of-a kind Chuck Jones original watercolor painting of the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote enacting that exact rule. Beautiful colors in this action gag painting. The Road Runner is making a point with his sign "CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR." The painting is signed by Chuck Jones in the bottom corner and comes with a Linda Jones Letter of Authenticity. Framed with Plexiglas, with a mat opening of 14" x 10". Nice full-figure images of 4" to 7". Vibrant colors. Great to have a Road Runner/Wile E. painting with a gag!
