Dr Seuss political cartoons from WW II period show his voice so well

The Mandeville Special Collections Library has scans of more than 400 cartoons that Dr. Seuss drew during WW II.
It’s cool to see cartoons that Dr Seuss drew, not from his books but in newspapers during wartime. You can clearly see his style–it’s so vivid–which to me is also like an author’s voice. If an artist or an author has a strong enough voice, you can pick it out anywhere. And that’s one of the things (in my opinion) that make a great writer or artist.

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
