Well, I have a friend named Rosemary who is crazy about Dr. Seuss. She even wrote a master’s thesis explaining how Seuss introduced philosophy to children. I plan on reading it sometime.
I love philosophy!
And how can anyone not love Dr. Seuss?!?!?!
I decided to make her a Cat in the Hat parody as she was going to be visiting from out of town. To my chagrin, no one had one on YouTube. I could only find an instructional video for the hat under Fewdoit.
I experimented and came up with this.
I used a white 350 for the belly and a grey 160 for the ears. Everything else is 260’s of course.
I got inspired for the head via the cuter bumblebee, in post just before this one. I realized that the way Chitwister did the bee head would translate very well for the head and neck for the cat.
The drawing of the face took several tries.
I didn’t have my white sausage twists pressed as firmly together as I would have liked but overall I was pleased with the outcome. I might experiment with putting a little nose in the center rather than drawing it on there. My arms could have been more even as well. Oh well, ce la vie, I won’t be in such a rush next time and will make a more polished one.
Rosemary loved it as you can see from pictures below. That’s all that really matters. 🙂
Balloons are like magic, yes truly it’s true. Each twist and turn reveals a you
you never knew.
(not actually a Seuss quote, lol.)
