This work resulted from a school assignment to create wine bottles inspired by an artist. The artist I chose is Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.The white wine, “Mulberry Street,” reflects the colorful and wacky illustrations we associate with Geisel’s famous children’s books. The red wine, “Geisel,” evokes his lesser known and much darker artwork, which was discovered after his death.

I used a spray paint, acrylic, and a lot of glue. The illustrations are mine, were done in pen and colored on the computer.

What’s Unique?
One wouldn’t normally associate Dr. Seuss and wine, so there is a unique and fun combination there. I think the project is a little outside the norm, which suits Dr. Seuss’s legacy nicely.
