About the Art: Looney Tunes Emergency, rendered by Juan Ortiz, shows what many of us have wondered about the damage inflicted on Looney Tunes characters – namely, if it hurts and do they ever go to the hospital.
Ortiz’s rendition is even funnier when one sees exactly who and what kind of damage is inflicted on the characters as Ortiz incorporates Wile E. Coyote, Daffy Duck and Yosemite Sam with injuries they are most likely to fall victim of in a classic Looney Tunes short.
Of course, Bugs has his usual smug expression, letting us know he’s had a personal hand in the delivery of these protagonists to the Looney Tunes emergency.
As a hand-painted cel, Looney Tunes Emergency was first silk-screened onto acetate, then painted on the reverse in the classic animation style.
The background for Looney Tunes Emergency was painted by Hector Martinez, and reproduced using the fine art Giclee process.
