Something in common with Dr. Seuss

August 10, 2012 – Yes, I worked in advertising in a former life, and although I wasn’t anything like Don Draper, I had my creative moments.

This week I was mighty excited to learn that Dr. Seuss also worked at an advertising agency before he became the best-selling author we all know and love.

You see, there’s hope for me yet.

If you’re a fan of Seuss – and who isn’t – you’ll be amazed by these advertisements he illustrated back in the 1920s and 30s, during his early career. They seem so familiar, don’t they?

And to think that I saw it on buzzfeed.com!
