So Much Seuss

It's been Dr. Seuss overload for the past few days. Just two days ago, it was Dr. Seuss' birthday which is also labelled as National Read Across America Day. And on Friday, The Lorax hit theaters nationwide. As if there wasn't enough Seuss going around, Gallery Nucleus opened their Dr. Seuss Tribute Show Look at This, Look at That last night.

Just hours before the show opened, my friend Zane Yarbrough was finishing up the Lorax-themed wall.

Here's a peek at a few of my favorite pieces from the show:

Did You Ever Walk with Ten Hats on Your Head? by Joy Ang

The Cat in the Hat by Joey Chou
I just love Joey Chou and within the last year, things have been blowing up for him. I first met him when he had a small little solo show at Flock Shop. Then I heard the big news that he was asked to be the illustrator for It's a Small World, although he already had a day job at Nickelodeon. And then came the subsequent shows at Gallery Nucleus, Giant Robot, and Leanna Lin's Wonderland. Things don't seem to be slowing down at all for him and I'm happy that he's getting a lot of attention because his work is pretty awesome.

Goodbye by Perry Dixon Maple
Thing 1 and Thing 2 by Mall
Mall(May Ann Licudine) is another artist who I absolutely love no matter what she does. She lives in the Philippines where she makes most of her living off of doing commissioned pieces. She started off doing super vibrant & super detailed illustrations and recently started transitioning into these mixed media/3D pieces. You can see this lovely piece in progress over at her blog as well as her other piece in the show.

If you're in the area, I definitely recommend checking out the show. It's up until March 24th.
