Last year on my birthday, I blogged a phone interview that I did with famed cartoon director Chuck Jones back in 1988. I neglected to mention that Mr. Jones also did a drawing of Bugs Bunny reading the newspaper for which I conducted the interview. I neglected to mention this because I used to own the original drawing but sold it to an L.A. art dealer years ago, and I never kept a copy of the original newspaper.
Luckily, my lifelong friend Paul Farrar did keep a copy of it, and he recently unearthed it and scanned it for me (for which many thanks, Paul!). I don’t flaunt things in people’s faces very often, but how many people can say they had Chuck Jones draw an original piece for them?
Here it is.
