ART·spiration: Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

Born on this day in 1904, Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss) was not only a popular child’s book author, but cartoonist and artist as well.  In his lifetime he accomplished much including the publishing of 46 children’s book, working as a political cartoonist for PM, and winning an Academy Award for best Documentary Feature for his work on Design for Death in 1974. Of all his work, we find his pencil drawings and watercolors the most inspirational.

We are fascinated with Seuss’ use of bright colors in imagined worlds full of made up machines, characters and landscapes. One could get lost in them for hours - how fun!
