What Have YOU Done Today?
The Political Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss did political propaganda cartoons, there was a museum show & book about this early work that came out a few years ago. He's a great cartoonist, i can't argue, cool forms, weird ideas, great musical quality to all of his work. BUT, i always felt like his children's books WERE propaganda, even at a young age i felt like they were so heavy handed & indoctrinational. I really appreciate his art style, but the stories just bug the living hell out of me. Anyhow, his more direct propaganda is pretty interesting & pretty racist!
