iPod BUGS BUNNY by Jerome-K-Moore iPod BUGS BUNNY by Jerome-K-Moore
WB Product Concept Art, Bugs Bunny, LOONEY TUNES. Pencil, Digital color.

Years ago, a WB Marketing exec wanted to pitch this idea of an animated iPod campaign, shortly after the very successful Apple ads showcasing U2. I sketched out several Looney Tunes concepts, with the trademark dancing silhouettes of Bugs Bunny, Tweety Bird, Sylvester, and the Tasmanian Devil. However, Apple, fat on its laurels, didn't show any eager interest.

Shame. Would've been cool.

Here, Bugs walks like an Egyptian.

This was originally just a marker comp, but I decided to clean and color it up as another fun Photoshop exercise. I hope you like it!

* Bugs Bunny is the property of Warner Bros. iPod is owned by Apple.

Yeah, that would have more than a hug success, just like that partnership with Nike's.

For this dance, anything from Carmen Miranda, to The Bangles, to Justin Timberlake.

Was it hard to draw? Cuz I'm looking at the headphones and I was wondering what you did. Did you draw the outlines first and colour around the whole thing or something else?

Of COURSE Sonic and Crash would be hooked up with their iPods! Why didn't the game companies think of that?

I love Bugs Bunny's antics. I used to watch it all the time as a child and I still watch it now. This is awesome. You captured it well. That would be such a great Ipod advert. Lovely work. I love it.

Good gawd, imagine how FREAKY GODDAMN AWESOME it'd be if Apple actually produced Looney Tunes iPods.. I'd get one without a doubt.

Yeah, if done right, it would be sweet. I would tone down the wacky cartoon feel, keeping it cool and funky. Just pick the perfect hot music track, and play it with the characters having the sly, in-your-face attitude that they did in SPACE JAM.
