gruvvulous gloves


Before I go to bed I thought I’d go ahead and introduce you guys to MY first Once-ler. 

This fuzzy-armed guy is from In Search of Dr. Seuss, a documentary on the life and times of the genius–his career history, his hardships, his views–accompanied by shortened versions of the Seuss short films. 

This documentary is pretty much the reason I started 72. Admittedly I did not read Suess growing up, nor did I own the movies. I just had this documentary. I loved the Once-ler’s bit the most because it was so suddenly mellow and dark compared to the rest of the documentary. Then there was this guy–with his long, gloved arms, his yellow eyes, his soft voice–Just…fkeajtj 

Er…what were we talking about again…..?


Anyway, the documentary is really really great and I’ll stream it for you guys some day! It’s super dorky and fun and colorful and just everything that’s spectacular about Seuss. I hope that you guys enjoy it as much as I do and did when I was a kid. 


Oh hey there, Kid. I’m assuming you mean Nut-Ler since his presence sticks out like a sore thumb. I don’t know who he is other than the reason my mind’s going numb. He’s constantly talking about voices in trees and how evil my Thneeds are. Haha. Please. You and I both know none of that is true, but until he realizes that I’ll just have to make due. I’d store your Thneeds somewhere safe if I were you, especially since you work so hard on each one. Boy I remember when it took me half an hour just to get a single Thneed done. If you need any help feel free to phone me.

Evil-how are my Thneeds evil! I’m not just running a business for personal fulfillment here, I’m trying to do some good by making everyone’s lives easier for an affordable price! What’s so ‘evil’ about that? Some people just don’t get it.

I think I’ll be fine. No one ever wanders in the middle of Trufulla Forest, and if they did, I think the critters would warn me. That’s right, I’ve figured out how to tame these guys. *holds up a marshmallow*

I just woke up from the strangest trance. I was young and poor--before I got my big chance. You know what I realized? Your green's got me hooked; I plan on BIGGERING, so I hope you're not too booked.

Apologies for not replying much much earlier, old friend. I completely missed this, until now…however, I must remind you to never forget to consult with success

here’s a sample of what i’ve created, if you happen to like it i would be elated!

my resume i will be sending along, as ‘heir of breath’ i have sung many a song. i’m certain that i could find many a place, where a market for thneeds could find quite a good space. all that i’m asking is just for a chance, so thank you for giving my artwork a glance!

John, there are no words for this.

You’re hired.
