One of the amazing things about being part of the Autumn Society is that it has allowed me to work with a lot of my heroes. Today, it is my pleasure to share with you the work of Rhode Montijo. Rhode created this tribute to Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) for the upcoming ICONOCLASTIC DEAD show in Mexico City (October 1st @ Galeria GURU).
To me Rhode's work is whimsical and genuine. Some of Rhode's published works include his graphic novel Pablo's Inferno, and his children's books Cloudboy, and The Halloween Kid. Rhode is also one of the co-creators & directors of the Happy Tree Friends. Along with Jorge Gutierrez, Rhode has had a big influence on my work and I'm still pinching myself to see that he's a part of this show!
A special thank-you to Eric "The Gute" Gonzalez for introducing me to Rhode's work back in 2006.
