“Terrible Yellow Eyes” is a truly wild collection of illustrations curated by Cory Godbey and inspired by Maurice Sendak’s cherished classic, Where the Wild Things Are.
The project ran from May 1, 2009 – January 1, 2010, and attracted a range of international artists, some quietly lyrical in their approach, others boldly graphic . (French illustrator Sebastien Mesnard did this drawing.)
I was amazed by the sheer imagination and emotion that went into the tributes. The love resounds… As Cory writes on the website: “I have been taken in by Maurice Sendak’s terrible and wonderful monsters. I love the anger, and the frightfulness, and the joy I find there.”
