The Chuck Jones Centennial Is A Perfect Time To Make $$$

What says “Chuck Jones centennial celebration” better than this kitschy painting of Bugs and Daffy riding motorcycles? According to the Chuck Jones Gallery, the artist Mike Kungl has created something of a masterpiece: “With his sleek styling, geometric patterns and luxurious color palette, he is able to evoke the sophistication of the Art Deco era and at the same time add a contemporary look to the beloved cartoon characters brought to such magical life by Chuck Jones.” The gallery is selling the limited edition piece for $600. Pay an extra $300 to have an artist “hand-embellish” the piece. For an extra $500, they’ll complete the deal and have one of their gallery employees whiz on Chuck’s grave.
