Another post today to honor the immensely talented and inspirational artist, Maurice Sendak, who passed away today. He is probably my all time favorite illustrator and his artwork has brought me unlimited motivation, wonder, and laughter.
I can’t think of a better way to honor him than to post this piece I painted of one of my little friend’s original poems:
and dark colors,
They are mine
of my own.
– Jenna, age 7
The original sketch I did of this piece reminded one of my art professors of Mr. Sendak’s work, a compliment I still remember and cherish today.
