dr seuss painting pink tuted small beast

theodore geisel (the one and only dr. seuss) was a man of oh so many talents. aside from his background in advertising that helped compartmentalize platforms for the greatest children’s literature ever penned, ted was a phenomenal painter and illustrator. he did not consider himself such, only working on this hobby after midnight. you can see more of his hobby here, and read lovely blurbs by another children’s literature genius, maurice sendak. this painting, known as the ‘pink tufted small beast in a night landscape’ was done by seuss in 1960. it exemplifies traces we’ve seen in the lorax, not to mention escher’s relativity. by sv
