RIP Maurice Sendak by minitreehouse RIP Maurice Sendak by minitreehouse
A tribute for one of my biggest inspiration. Maurice Sendak taught me lots of lesson via his books and interviews. His views on life and art gave me a different perspective in everything that I do. Thanks for inviting me to the Wild Rumpus, Mr. Sendak. Rest in Peace..

My mom used to read this book to me almost every night before going to bed, when I found out Maurice Sendak died, all of the bed time memories came back, sad that such a fantastic and inspiring man passed away.

This is very adorable though and very well done, you really captured his style.

This is gorgeous, the message and the art, and really hit me hard. He was an amazing author and artist who brought recreation to my life, and I do find a resemblance in his work and your own. It takes one idea and flips it around, turning it inside out and painting it another color. It's amazing, really. I found a bit of solace in how the wolf suit, hung on the headboard, almost looks like it's standing. As if, somewhere out there, there are still terrible displays of roars being roared and teeth being gnashed and eyes being rolled and claws being shown. Good work, and I hope this aids him in his rest.
Finally, to Maurice Sendak, Please don't go - we'll eat you up - we love you so!
