"Oh please don’t go— we’ll eat you up— we love you so!"
I am honored to have worked on today’s birthday doodle for Maurice Sendak. One of my very first memories as a sentient organism was of Where the Wild Things Are. My pre-school teacher read the book to us kiddies and held a staring contest like the monsters in the forest. I beat all the other students and my teacher. This is still one of my greatest accomplishments.
Many thanks to Corrie Scalisi and Mike Dutton for engineering and art collaboration!
