Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

It’s no secret that I am a huge Dr. Seuss fan — his art is wonderful, his lyrics fantastic, and his whimsy and fearless storytelling is something from which we all could learn.

Today’s post is in honor of what would have been the 108th birthday of Theodore Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss. 

This piece is actually very small — it might be 5″ X 7″, I don’t remember for certain.  It was created on a half of a page from an old sketchbook using a red calligraphy pen and a black Sharpie.  Again, my focus with mimicking Seuss is his dynamic use of lines and block color.

Happy Birthday to the Coolest Cat around! Thank you for your great stories, your inspiration, and your lasting legacy.
