Today the king of all wild things is gone. Maurice Sendak has passed away at 83. A big inspiration to me. I would have loved to have the chance to have met him, but I did get to see his original works on display in NYC.
The characters pictured here are from Where the Wild Things Are, Little Bear, In The Night Kitchen, Higglety Pigglet Pop, Bumble Ardy, The Griffin and the Minor Canon and The Nutshell Library.
Rest in peace, Maurice, take care in that big rumpus in the sky. Thank you for all your wonderful gifts. When I look at your work I feel like my supper will always be hot.
