Seussification phase I

Ok, so it took a little longer than I had anticipated to get the first phase of project Seussify the baby's room underway. At long last here are the images of the first few characters. More will appear in time, but the process is long and arduous.

We've been using foam backed poster board and tempera paints covered with a sheet of sticky acetate to help preserve them. Jim has been responsible for drawing and cutting out all of the figures. I do the painting. Each figure is attached to the wall with adhesive velcro so that we can move them around and change them out. The plan (perhaps a bit ambitious) is to be able to have a good number of figures so that when we get sick of looking at the same ones we can do some Seuss remodeling. Jim is keen on drawing up some Seuss architecture and I want a Grinch in time for Christmas. Other Seuss suggestions are happily being taken. :)
