This might be the start of a series… inspired by favorite children’s illustrators. Maurice Sendak’s work is SO inspiring to the likes of me – lots of pen and ink work, fun subject matter, muted colors – it’s all right up my alley!

Many art students learn by trying to replicate a master’s work; I’ve never been much for that since that painting or drawing is already done – I’d rather try to mimic a style, and see what I can incorporate from it into my own. With Maurice Sendak’s Where the WIld Things Are, I love the line work’s looseness that fits right in with my own style.


You don’t have to replicate all of a person’s style – you can make these with super bright fun colors. Or with his colors and no black lines. Or whatever it is YOU learn from looking at his work!
