365 Days of Art – Day 58


…..planning on creating a Dr. Seuss like character

For one of my year long assignments with Carla Sonheim I’m suppose to come up with my own Dr. Seuss like character. I decided to study some of Dr. Seuss’ illustrations and see what common characteristics they have. One is the u shape inside the large oval eyes that he uses for most of his characters. The mouth line is just a simple curve ending with a curved cheek line. Here are two practice drawings that I copied from his book What Pet Should I Get?

    • I’m only recently retired as a teacher and in my last five years I was the librarian at our school. I was always amazed at how popular Dr. Seuss continues to be with young children and adults alike. His books were always signed out and well read.
