This past weekend, I was at the BlogHer conference in SanDiego, CA. After the conference had ended, I decided to explore San Diego and that’s when I came across the Chuck Jones Gallery.
The Chuck Jones Gallery
The gallery was absolutely wonderful! Chuck Jones is a renowned artist who helped bring to life such characters as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. Jones himself created the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote and Pepe le Pew to name a few! If these character names didn’t spark the interest of your childhood memories, than I am SURE you would warmly remember this… Jones produced, directed and wrote the screenplays for Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Jones and “Dr. Seuss” met and became friends during World War II. Together, they created How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Because the two were friends, the Chuck Jones Gallery came to own a good amount or Dr. Seuss’ artwork. I thoroughly enjoyed the Dr. Seuss exhibit, as did Scribble Man!
Scribble Man and The Cat in the Hat!
I’ve always had a soft spot for Dr. Seuss books. The soft lines and whimsical creative always appealed to me. Looking at the artwork, really inspired my creative and perhaps you will see some Seuss inspired Scribble Jam scribbles posted in the coming weeks!
