The Grinch Lives To Sled!

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

Th original assignment was to pick your favorite quote or make up your own phrase which describes a philosophy that you try to live by and to design a minimalism poster to reflect this. The remix part of the assignment was to add in an element of Dr. Seuss. So since I had to use another students work I decided to browse through the submissions for the original assignment. At each assignment I came across I tried to see how I could incorporate Dr. Seuss into it. I finally came across the one below and and thought I remembered seeing a Dr. Seuss character ski before.

When I browsed through Google to find a Dr. Seuss character on skis the only thing that came up was the Grinch sledding. I felt like this could still fit into the mountain scene and the quote that says “Ride to live. Live to ride.” So you could interpret this picture as the Grinch riding down the hill because it is the easiest way to get to civilization (riding to live) and the dog enjoying himself like all pets do (living to ride).
