Inspired by Dr. Suess and Drawing Lab- My Interpretation of a Suessian Landscape

Been a weird kinda day. Cold and rainy and projects stopping and starting.

Did some writing and then decided to take a break by doing an exercise with Drawing Lab for Mixed Media Artists by Carla Sonheim. I used “Lab 23: Your Inner Dr. Suess.” I like this book a lot. It has lots of great exercises that are fun and easy to follow. The book is well laid-out. I picked it up at a museum gift-shop on a whim. Yay for whims that work!

I didn’t have any Dr. Suess books on hand so I went with memory and ended up with this:

Inspired by Dr. Suess. My interpretation of a Suessian landscape.

It’s a good beginning for a larger project maybe. I originally drew more mushrooms but they ended up looking a little too… anatomically correct so I erased them.
