Lion is put in his place...


I love the Wizard of OZ! I think it was around the 4th grade when I would go to the library and check out as many OZ books as I could find; -especially the big fat ones with the amazing illustrations in them. I would study those drawings so much; they were a big influence on me. We currently live in a house that used to be on the MGM lot back in the day, and it is where they made all the costumes for the Wizard of OZ movie. We call it the Tailor of OZ's house. Cool, huh? I hope to add color to this one too, eventually.

Seth! What a great interpretation... Nice emotion on the characters, and a great choice for a scene. Your love for Oz really shows.

I guess I'll be buying this print from you as well....

Beautiful again, Seth! I love it! The emotion and character designs are awesome, and Toto's a jerk. Amazing, as always.

Very cool. I also like them when they're colored, but hey, that's me. ;)

There's color! Didn't you see the color? Wait, no, you're right. There's no color. And Toto is a jerk. I've always had a hard time feeling any sympathy for those little yappy dogs. Maybe next time I'll draw Toto getting what's coming to him.

Well done Seth. Love the expressions on the characters. This Dorothy looks like the kind of girl that could give the wicked witch a run for her money.
