ACME LABS™ and The Chuck Jones Gallery announced today the development of the Lost Wrabbit™ NFT Collection.
Animation legend Chuck Jones was the key creative force behind Looney Tunes cartoons and possibly the most memorable and enduring set of characters in history, including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E Coyote, Marvin the Martian, and many others.
Chuck Jones Gallery’s inaugural launch will be “Lost Wrabbit™,” a unique character created by Chuck Jones in the 1980s. Ben Olson – an artist with the Chuck Jones Gallery - is bringing Lost Wrabbit™ into the 2020s with a fresh, modern perspective.
“Leveraging distributed ledger technologies to provide provenance and authenticity is a game changer for the art space” according to Craig Kausen, the grandson of Chuck Jones and President of the Chuck Jones Companies.
ACME LABS™ is a metaverse community built around visual storytelling that leverages emerging technologies, including blockchain, augmented and virtual reality, and real-time interactions.
Their initial focus is on art and collectibles associated with animation, comic books, and emerging XR media. According to Jon Stock, CEO of ACME LABS, “Early Hollywood storytellers used the name “ACME” as the ubiquitous provider of goods and services – and we are happy to bring this name to this new world of metaverse builders.”
ACME LABS™ is built on Hedera - an enterprise-grade, environmentally friendly distributed ledger technology. Building on Hedera ensures creators and collectors can easily participate in this new world of metaverse building with low transaction fees. In addition, the Hedera ecosystem supports credit cards and cryptocurrency to allow more people to join in the Web3 revolution, whether or not they have invested in crypto.
Providing virtual rooms where creators and the community can share their collections and collaborate is an important distinction for ACME LABS™. In addition, they carefully choose creators to ensure quality and dedication to building a long-term and stable community.
The company is headquartered in San Diego, home to the world’s largest comic book convention. During the San Diego Comic-Con, ACME LABS™ plans to give attendees (and those who love them) a chance to win a Limited Edition Lost Wrabbit™ NFT + Fine Art Print from The Chuck Jones Gallery.
