Oh the places you'll go
The next issue of YES Mag -- which, for those of you just tuning in, is one of the two children's magazines I design -- is all about the origins of "simple but ingenious" inventions. Pencils, Spoons, Yo-Yos, LEGO... that sort of thing.
Our editor wrote the article's introductory page in the style of a Dr. Seuss book, and after much convincing, I agreed to take on the extra workload of creating a Seuss-styled accompanying illustration. I'm really happy with how it turned out. It was fun diving into the old Seuss books and trying to pick up on all the little quirks of his design methods and inking style.
My final drawing isn't perfect by any means, but at least it manages to scream "Seuss" when you look at it. You can have a look yourself by clicking the image below!
