Illustration Challenge #8: Oh, The Places You'll Go!
(My personal Illustration Challenge for 2017 is to complete one 'page spread' from a popular, modern or classic children's story each week, picked randomly from a hat. Using lines from the original text, I am re-creating the 'imagery' in my own way, just for fun!)
Dr Seuss... where to begin?
"You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose."
(Oh, The Places You'll Go! by Dr Seuss, published in 1990)
I really hated doing this one. Really, properly putting it off and not enjoying any of it. So it shows.
Not my best work.
I would probably come back and do something very different with more time.
In fact, to be perfectly honest I wanted to get all political with it. (My daughters - unlike many other children - have options, for which I am very grateful. Choice is a privilege that I hope they never take for granted.)
