Where the Wild Things Are
No childhood (or adulthood) would be complete without reading Where the Wild Things Are. I am so excited to see that this children's book has transformed into a movie creation. You can see the trailer and read more about it on the official website.
With the movie coming out soon, Cory Godbey created a blog called Terrible Yellow Eyes. He writes, "Terrible Yellow Eyes is a collection of works inspired by the beloved classic, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
Over the coming weeks and months I'll display a growing collection of works created by invited contributing artists and myself.
We share a love and admiration for Sendak's work and the pieces we present here are done as a tribute to his life and legacy."
I encourage you to go over to the blog and check out all the amazing work from artists who are inspired by Where the Wild Things Are. Above are two of my favorite illustrations that were submitted to the blog. Enjoy!
