Monster Monday

Again, this is done by watercolour and the spots is add on by painting lemon juice on after its dry. I don't really like how it came out last week. So I try the lemon juice technique again, but with different kind of watercolour. This time, it actually create the effect I wanted.
After I was done with this monster, I have this big lemon juice, so I decide to do the same exercise with the students and this drawing become one of the sample. :) Why not kill two birds with one stone. lol
O, and the city is add on with photoshop.... I guess with out the city they will just be octopuses, or they are call octopi in plural forms...

Monster Monday

There is never enough monster, right? another week another monster! This one drawn with a marker and colour with water colour. The spots on his body are done by droping lemon juice over the paint. They turn out lighter then I expect. But for a change, NO photoshop is used in this drawing!

Dr. Seuss

At the time of Theodor Seuss Geisel's eath in 1991, his 46 children's books had sold more than 200 million copies, and his last, Oh, the Places You'll Go! (1990), was still on the bestseller lists. His books, which he both illustrated and wrote, have been translated into twenty languages as well as Braille.
Better known by his pen name, Dr. Seuss, he populated his odd and fanciful children's books with a hybrid bestiary of Wockets, Whos, Grinches, bunches of Hunches, Bar-ba-loots, red fish, blue fish, and a fox in socks. He once remarked in an interview, "If I were invited to a dinner party with my characters, I wouldn't show up."

His stories march forward at an incantatory, rhythmic pace, and are full of tongue-twisters, word play, and highly inventive vocabulary. The American Heritage Dictionary in fact credits Dr. Seuss as the originator of the word nerd, which made its first appearance in his 1950 book, If I Ran the Zoo: "And then just to show them, I'll sail to Ka-Troo And Bring Back an It-Kutch a Preep and a Proo a Nerkle a Nerd and a Seersucker, too!"

Among his most famous books is The Cat and the Hat (1957), a story about two children who find themselves home alone with a roguish, hat-wearing feline who is a study in bad behavior. With only 223 vocabulary words and much repetition, it was ideally suited for beginning readers . Green Eggs and Ham (1960) managed with a vocabulary of just fifty words to tell the story of a Seuss creature's relentless crusade to introduce a hapless furry character to a revolting dish.

These two book are my favorties among all his book. I remember reading it over and over when i was a little kids. The best children book artist ever!!
