My Apologies to Mr. Geisel

What's all this then? An update? That's right, it was no fluke. Here we have a drawing I did for a friend, the original of which hangs on his wall. The story goes that we were supposed to hang out the coming Saturday, but he canceled on me, saying "I'm going with my friend to a Dr. Suess Party." 'What's that,' I replied, thinking it was maybe some sort of birthday party for his friends' nephew or something. "I have no idea, but there will be drinking and dancing." 'I can see it now, you're going to lose your anal virginity to a man in a tall, striped hat.' This struck me as an amusing thought, and so, with a little inspiration from this Action Comics cover, for posing purposes, I gave him the completed drawing two days later. And now it's up for all to see. (Note, the drawing here has been color corrected and my hand lettering replaced with fonts to enhance humor and readability.)

  1. I prefer the original lettering, myself.

    And if you squint when you look at your Seuss/Superman, it looks like his body is the face of some weird alien octopus thing.
