Looney Tunes Movie ‘The Day the Earth Blew Up’ Launching at AFM From Warner Bros. Animation

The Looney Tunes feature is almost released! I had the priviledge of supervising much of the character animation on this wonderful film for the past year and a half, which is one of the highlights of my career.
