I’m not ready to talk about how the death of Maurice Sendak has effected me. Badly, is the best I can say. I spent most of that day running to the girl’s room to cry my eyes out. Everyone thought someone in my family had died, and those few who dragged the truth out of me were totally weirded out over my reaction to an author’s death. So I’m feeling a little jaded and also still very heartsore.
I will talk about it because Maurice Sendak means a lot to me. I just don’t want to talk about it yet.
Instead I’d like to share this site with you. It’s called Terrible Yellow Eyes.
Terrible Yellow Eyes is a collection of works inspired by the beloved classic, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
The contributing artists share a love and admiration for Sendak’s work and the pieces presented here were done as a tribute to his life and legacy.
