THE GRAND FINALE LOBBY CARD
MEDIUM: Limited Edition Cel
SIZE: 17" x 21"
EDITION SIZE: 100
ABOUT THE IMAGE: The Grand Finale Lobby Card represents the last of the Lobby Card Series. Instead of focusing on one character, The Grand Finale Lobby Card brings together many favorite Looney Tunes’ characters, each of whom is represented in the background by a lobby card once used to promote their respective cartoons. Created by artist Juan Ortiz, the characters interact in this piece much in the same way they would on screen; Daffy “raspberries” Bugs while Wile E. intently prepares to light a stick of TNT in front of the Road Runner. The background comprises digital images of 25 original lobby cards, provided by the animation art collection of Jerry Beck.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Juan Ortiz has been an illustrator/designer for Disney and Warner Bros. for 25 years. He has penciled covers for DC Comics’ Looney Tunes and Tiny Toons magazines. He is also the publisher of his own comic book series, Silver Comics, seen in the Disney/Dreamworks release I Am Number Four (produced by Steven Spielberg) as well as The Skull Army, a macabre/detective pulp.
