space View King 5 and New Day Northwest with Margaret Larson as she interviews Jeff Schuffman, the National Sales Manager for the Dr. Seuss Collection.

Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, began his career as a little known editorial cartoonist in the 1920s. His

intriguing perspective and fresh concepts ignited his career, and his work evolved quickly to deft illustrations,

modeled sculpture, and sophisticated oil paintings of elaborate imagination.

Dr. Seuss is currently best known as one of the most beloved and bestselling children's authors of all time, having

written and illustrated classics such as The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and How The Grinch Stole

Christmas! Geisel was also a political cartoonist for PM magazine during World War II, as well as a contributing

illustrator for Vanity Fair and Life.

He had a long, successful advertising career, and was an Academy Award winner for his wartime documentaries,

as well as his animated short film, Gerald McBoing Boing. Today his paintings hang in fine art galleries alongside

old and contemporary masters including Picasso, Warhol, Rembrandt, Miró, and others.

His unique artistic vision emerged as the golden thread which linked every facet of his varied career and his

artwork became the platform from which he delivered 44 children’s books, over 400 World War II political cartoons,

hundreds of advertisements, and countless editorials filled with wonderfully inventive animals, characters, and

clever humor. Geisel single-handedly forged a new genre of art that falls somewhere between the Surrealist

Movement of the early 20th century and the inspired nonsense of a child’s classroom doodles.
