duttonart:

Background paintings for the Maurice Sendak Google doodle. Fellow doodler, Jennifer Hom did a brilliant job leading the creative on this and doing all the heavy lifting, including the characters, animation, and the layouts and block-ins for these BGs. I was happy to do my small part and take the backgrounds to a finish.

I was even happier to use this opportunity to study Sendak’s work a little more closely. I originally planned to paint these backgrounds in watercolor, but due to the complexity of the project and the short timeline I had to work in, I opted for digital. Yet I still feel like I got to learn a thing or two about how he composed images and made sense out of the most amazing kinds of clutter, whether a dense jungle, buildings from the pantry, or the skeletal remains of a farmhouse ripe for a birthday parade.

Happy 85th birthday to a true master! You can see the fully animated tribute here:

Here are the fully composed backgrounds for the Maurice Sendak doodle— Thanks Dutton!

"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!
