Quick interruption! I know I said I wouldn't, but I think you'll like this one.
One of my favorite blogs, the School Library Journal children's book blog Fuse #8 was asking artists to Re-Seussiffy Dr. Seuss. Meaning illustrating a Dr. Seuss in the style of another well-known children's artist. I went with one of my absolute favorite children's illustrators, the terrifying Stephen Gammel (of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark fame.)
Oh man, did I love those Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books. They came out right when I was in grade school. MORE Scary Stories, the second book, came out when I was in fifth grade. I got into a fight in the school library--an actual physical fight--over the library's only copy.
You will not find scarier illustrations in ANY book. Those pictures are AMAZING. Profoundly gruesome, nightmarish images. And they were in books meant for little kids.
If you don't know these images (and you should--the books were HUGELY popular) do a google image search for "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark." You will get an eyeful.
Anyway, here is my Re-Seussifaction via Stephen Gammel:
