Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan join forces in the Nike television commercial”Aerospace Jordan.” The artists from Warner Bros. Classic Animation created this hand-painted limited edition cel entitled, “Aerospace Jordan” to commemorate the second Nike commercial starring the infamous duo of “Hare and Air.”This was first aired during the Super Bowl XXVII in 1993.
This limited edition animation cel began with a master inking of the characters (from the animation) which was silkscreened onto an acetate sheet (or “cel”). Each cel was then meticulously hand-painted on the reverse side. The hand-painted background was reproduced using a four-color lithography process. Each cel was silkscreened with the Warner Bros. Animation Art seal. Finally, the limited edition number was hand-inked on each cel in an edition size of 500.
