Rich Michelson over at the R. Michelson Galleries put out a special call to his artists for this year's Children's Illustration show. He asked us to create a piece of art that paid tribute to a book that was especially influential to us. I, like many, love and adore Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
I had so much fun creating this piece and I hope that you enjoy it. You can view the painting in person, along with my original picture book art and Lunch Lady art, at this year's exhibit, which opens on November 8th.
And in true pinch-me fashion,there will also be original Sendak Wild Things drawings on the walls.
Are you as excited about the Where the Wild Things Are movie as I am?
