Why are you a Once-ler? by Toodles3702 Why are you a Once-ler? by Toodles3702
“Every once in a while, I sit down with myself, asking-

Once-ler…Why are you a Once-ler?

And I cringe, I don’t smile, as I sit there on trial, asking-

Aren’t you ashamed? You old Once-ler!

You ought to be locked in a hoosegow, you should

The things that you do are completely UN-GOOD!

Heh-heh, yeah…

But if I didn’t do them, someone else would!

…That’s a very good point!

Mr. Once-ler…”

I was going to put a reflection in the window, but as I'm getting busier with the end of the school semester, I'm not sure I'll be able to now. I'll add it...eventually!

This scene was desperately needed in the 2012 film.

Oh, I loved that moment from the original. Wish it was in the movie.

Here's what I absolutely adore about what you've done with some of this new Lorax art is while you are doing it based off that, I get the feeling from the settings, and in some of the style a little bit more of the old Lorax. While I still need to see the new Lorax I adore the old one, and the fact that you're able to use some elements, (whether subconsciously or consciously) and combine them to some extent and mesh the two worlds together in a manner is just fantastic. Again don't know if it's something you're trying to do or not, but I see some old 70's Lorax in a lot of the newer stuff you've put out of the Once-ler. (for example the lack of seeing his face etc) and I really enjoy it!

Yes, this is something that I've been doing consciously ;) I really love the 1972 version of 'The Lorax,' and I've really enjoyed mixing both the old and the new together.
