Pic of the Day: Where the Wild Things Are-Inspired Art


It has been a few months since the internet collectively flipped out over the Where the Wild Things Are trailer. Just when we’d managed to forget the upcoming Spike Jonze flick (the movie isn’t out until October!) here at HQ, we came across Terrible Yellow Eyes, a website that collects artist works that are inspired by the book. This beautiful piece by Ana Galvañ really stood out, and there are a handful of others that we can imagine hanging in our apartment.

“My goal for this project is really just that, expressing of my love for the story. None of the art has been done for any profit but has all been created out of admiration for Maurice Sendak and Where the Wild Things Are,” explains Cory Godbey. “Simply put, like a visual love letter to the book, with Terrible Yellow Eyes I am seeking to celebrate and promote the original masterwork by Maurice Sendak in the best way I know how — with pictures.”

So much for getting this children’s story out of our head anytime soon…
