I grew up reading Dr. Seuss books and have always loved the whimsical characters. I was over the moon when I discovered the book called The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss. My personal favorite was Cat from the Wrong Side of the Tracks. I contacted the folks at Dr. Seuss Enterprises LLC, and they granted me permission to reproduce this print in miniature for my personal collection. Hooray!
I think it will end up in the Brownstone ultimately, but it might make appearances elsewhere in the meantime. I also plan to make a frame for it eventually, so I made the art crate a little larger than the print. There’s slight texture to the scrapbook paper I used that gives it a canvas quality.
I made the art crate from basswood scraps darkened with a touch of brown paint mixed with staining medium. The nails are bronze paint. It is non-opening. I cut a stencil using the Cricut to dry brush lettering and symbols. These were relative large in scale, but the crate is large and needed clear markings. One side turned out better than the other, so I have a definite right side. Yes, that's a packing list pocket, bill of lading, invoice and certificate of authenticity.
