Dr. Seuss - Illustration Art
Like Norman Rockwell, Seuss personally created every
rough sketch, preliminary drawing, final line drawing and finished
work for each page of every project he illustrated.
Despite the technical and budgetary limitations of
color printing during the early and mid-twentieth century, Dr. Seuss
the artist was meticulous about color selection. He created specially
numbered color charts and elaborate color call-outs to precisely
accomplish his vision for each book. Saturated reds and blues, for
example, were carefully chosen for The Cat in the Hat to attract
and maintain the visual attention of a six-year-old audience.
By the time Seuss’s book career took off, sharp
draftsman skills were evident in drawings. His ability to move a
storyline ahead via illustrations filled with tension, movement and
color became a hallmark component of his work, and the surreal images
that unfolded over six decades became the catalyst for a humorous
and inspired learning experience.
