To Play or Not to Play

In a scene from the smash hit movie Space Jam, Bugs Bunny calls upon his classical theater training, referencing the famous "To be or not to be" scene from Shakespeare's Hamlet to convince superstar Michael Jordan to join the Toon Squad in the basketball game to end all basketball games.
This cel began with a master inking of Bugs Bunny (from the animation drawings) which was silkscreened onto an acetate sheet (or "cel"). Each cel was then meticulously hand-inked and hand-painted on the reverse side to capture the 3-D shadow effect created by computer modeling for the film. Through the miracle of modern technology, the digital background was composed with the image of Michael Jordan, (both taken directly from the movie) and was reproduced using the lithography process. Each cel was silkscreened with the Warner Bros. Animation Art seal. In the final step of production, the limited edition number was hand-inked on each eel in an edition size of 500. This 16 field cel is not signed by Michael Jordan.
