Where the Wild Things Are

What child doesn't love the idea of dressing up like a monster and floating away to a far off land where they'll be crowned king (or queen)? I did a painting, just for fun, a while ago that depicted Max and his fellow monster having a good old wild rumpus in the woods.

Today being the birth of Maurice Sendak I decided it would be more than appropriate to share it. 

Mr. Sendak, I love your creation Where the Wild Things Are
Happy Birthday to you.


  1. I'm so exited to see your new work ...you able to transform something static to something so animated,personal, and real. I just love to see this story continues to unfold.

  2. Lovely! Thank you for posting to the Folk Reveries Blog thread : )
    It is a truly magical and inspiring story. He is missed by many.

  3. Hello, I've found my way here from your link in the Etsy Madcap team blog thread. Your illustrations are so beautiful! I dabble (not very succesfully) at drawing as well and truly admire the skill and talent of artists, so I'm so glad I chanced upon your blog. I'm definitely following your work. :)
