The Press Release on the art:

New Orleans, LA and Los Angeles, CA (October 13, 2009) – Catch Dat Brees, a fine art limited edition featuring Drew Brees and the famous Warner Bros. Looney Tunes characters, has just been released to commemorate the second time in NFL history that a quarterback has eclipsed the 5,000 yard passing threshold. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a numbered fine art lithograph or hand-painted cel limited edition, both personally signed by Drew Brees, will raise funds for the Brees Dream Foundation.

“I am honored to be the first football player to be featured in a Warner Bros. animated fine art lithograph and cel,” said Drew Brees. “I love this art and I’m excited for my son to see his Dad throwing a pass to Bugs Bunny,” added Drew.

The limited edition has Drew completing the pass to Bugs Bunny for this colorfully captured moment in sports. Notice that Daffy Duck has just finished turning the 50 yard line into the “5000” yard line. “Bugs Bunny is wearing Billy Miller's number since Billy caught the pass that put us over 5,000 yards,” said Drew. “This could not have been accomplished without my teammates, coaches, fans, and of course, the great city of New Orleans.”

“I get to play a fun role in this piece as I’m immortalized as the one and only Bugs Bunny” said Billy Miller. “Catching the pass that put Drew over the 5,000 yards mark means a lot to me and helping him raise funds for the Brees Dream Foundation, our team, and the city really brings it all home,” added Billy.

Catch Dat Brees is the first animated Warner Bros. sports limited edition to feature an athlete in nearly a decade. Drew Brees is the first football player to be featured in a Warner Bros. animated limited edition making him a part of American animation art history. Drew Brees joins the company of sports legends Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Wayne Gretzky, and Derek Jeter.

“I am so proud of Drew and our family is very fortunate to be a part of this great city,” said Brittany Brees. “The Brees Dream Foundation is committed to providing care, education and opportunities for children, and this wonderful project with Warner Bros. is a part of our ongoing efforts in New Orleans.”

Join the tribute to Drew and help raise funds needed for the Brees Dream Foundation for their ongoing efforts in Louisiana. Special introductory pricing is available for a limited time, so visit to be a part of this limited edition only available for this season.
