THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL

'Green Eggs and Ham', 'The Cat in the Hat' and 'Fox in Socks' were just a few of the many Dr. Seuss books I read as a little boy (and to some extent, as a not so little boy). Funnily enough, Dr. Seuss wasn't actually a 'Dr'. Apparently, he used Dr. in his pen name as an acknowledgement of his father's unfulfilled hopes of him earning a Doctorate from Oxford University!! Anyway, his writing and brilliantly surreal illustrations are nothing short of legendary and still as popular today as they were back then.

Guys thanks a million for all the feedback! I think I'll be doing a lot more pencil sketches for the next while. It felt like I was starting all over again with this sketch because it was so long since my last one.
