Why Chuck Jones, the Creator of Looney Tunes, Was Such a Great Artist

By Casey Chan on at

Tony Zhou of Every Frame a Painting does his always wonderful deep dive thing on Chuck Jones, the creator of Looney Tunes, and examines how he evolved as an artist. It goes beyond his technical skill, jokes, characters, and discipline to tell how Jones used the real world to inspire his work in his world.

Zhou writes:

If you grew up watching Looney Tunes, then you know Chuck Jones, one of all-time masters of visual comedy. Normally I would talk about his ingenious framing and timing, but not today. Instead, I’d like to explore the evolution of his sensibilities as an artist.
