    Terrible Yellow Eyes - Maurice Sendak Tribute Project

    Hey guys! A fan of Maurice Sendak is rounding up a bunch of artists to do a piece based on Where the Wild Things Are and I can think of a bunch of artists here who could do some amazing work for it. I guess this might be an unpaid job, but it's really just a group activity sort of thing.

    Anyway, the blog is here with some works from a few diff artists; expect it to grow every day.

    Terrible Yellow Eyes!


    I admit, I haven't read WtWWA (d'oh!) but I have to now... though I did enjoy one of his lesser-known and proudly banned books, In the Night Kitchen.

    Ba-da-bump!

    The blog is full of dozens of pieces now and I'm really floored by the variety and obvious love that went into these works. Wanted to keep this fresh in your minds for those who are into illustration!

    Lookie lookie!

    I'm going to bump this again because you all should see the finish and how many cool pieces were included. Even Peter de Seve contributed. Apparently he was a student of Sendak. http://www.terribleyelloweyes.com

    Wow, what fantastic illustrations!! O_O I think I was 12 or 13 when I first saw that book. I read it, loved it, watched a little movie of it too. ^___^ I love the lines and the colours! Thought Max was a jerk. o_o Was that his name, the boy? Anyway, yeah. XD
