Art Doll Quarterly Challenge: Dr. Seuss Character

This past Friday, I was inspired...
picking up my most recent copy of Art Doll Quarterly
noticing the up-coming challenge was a
Dr. Seuss Character Doll...

Well... with only nine days before the deadline for submission
my "strange bird" is off tomorrow in the mail!

He is based upon the book: "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"

Here are the stanzas that inspired my character doll:

You'll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You'll get mixed up with
many strange birds as you go.

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life's
a Great Balancing Act.
~ Dr. Seuss

I just put together this "sneak peek" video
which captures the process (and madness!)
Enjoy! Daryle


  1. You did a super job on this one. I really like it.

  2. He's amazing Daryle! You have such a clever and creative mind! What a wonderful way to represent The Great Balancing Act! I'm sure Stampington will definitely want to publish him. :D

  3. He is absolutely amazing! I love his face and his balancing and of course Dr. Seuss quotations are among my favorites.

  4. Wonderfully whimsical ... loved watching the creative progression as this strange bird took shape. Smiling and chuckling all the way from Wisconsin. ~Tosa

    1. Hey Tosa!!! Wishing you and your family a (belated) Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year! Hope this little note finds its way to your heart and home! Daryle

  5. OH my, love this creature, Daryle! Happy holidays.

  6. Thank you each and all... I can't wait to hear from Stampington & Company; hoping they too will enjoy him as much as I did creating him! Daryle
