ROUND #168 :: Where the Wild Things AreDESCRIPTION
Where the Wild Things Are
... is a wonderful children’s book published in 1963 by Maurice Sendak, and if you haven’t read it, you should have! Apparently it is one of Obama’s favourite books! It might be sacrilege to even attempt it this week but imagine a new monster for Max (the central little boy of the story) to meet. They have a very distinctive look loosely based on Mythical Creatures, and of course the style of Sendak is what appeals, but don’t try and match his technique. Use your own and design a new one with his used as inspiration. This is for fun, and although they are ‘wild things’ they are somehow warm and friendly so perhaps steer away from anything gorey. I think the only requirement is yellow eyes!
