I thought that this was a pretty awesome quote! It totally fits me and the things my family come up with. Not only do I think it fits my family, but... okay fine! I'll say it! The ART world! When I first started my major in the Arts, I thought people were quite weird when we did critiques. What is all this business talking about how this piece of art makes you FEEL? WEIRD totally weird to me at first. I guess I didn't know what I was expecting when I started these art classes.

But whoda thunk it!? I'm one of them now and i'm starting to think that way when I look at art. I also like the typography in this piece of work. I can't remember who did this poster, but check out the different fonts and how well they fit together! Okay i'll just stop while I'm ahead. This artist who designed this quote by Dr. Suess was in an interview. The person who was interviewing him asked him this question:
What advice would you give to anyone starting out in a similar field?

Cynicism and sarcasm should be left at the door, you have to be prepared to do the little jobs, the free jobs and the jobs that you don't really want to do. Enthusiasm is infectious and when mixed with good manners plus an original style you can't go wrong, as the last client will remember you and pass you on to the next, before you know it you will have a bulky folio and bright future.

I thought that was some pretty good advice! I know I will think of that quite often if I want to be successful in my field.

Now I feel really bad that I do not have this artist's name. As soon as I find it, I will all let you know so you can see some of his other work!
