Two exhibits show different side of Dr. Seuss

Another off-topic but interesting story from the Detroit News about an exhibit of Dr. Suess’ art work. There appears to be much more to Dr. Suess than I knew before. Read the full article.

Before he was Dr. Seuss, Theodor Seuss Geisel began his career as an editorial cartoonist in the 1920s. He moved into advertising in the 1930s with the Flit pesticide campaign, devising the catchphrase “Quick Henry the Flit.”

Over the years, he wrote and illustrated 44 children’s books, delivered more than 400 World War II political cartoons, credit hundreds of advertisements and countless editorials filled with inventive characters and a lot of humor.

He also made time for his so-called “secret art,” where his creatures cavort in surreal atmospheres. The shows also touch upon this phase if his art.
