The Wild Things are being unleashed over at Cory Godbey's blog tribute to Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. It's called Terrible Yellow Eyes and Cory was nice enough to invite me to contribute some original artwork.
I started in Flash, and ended in Photoshop where I added some watercolor textures to the background. I definitely wanted to show a wilder side of Max.
Here's my line art.
And this is the sketch I worked from. I actually did a lot of other drawings, which I may post at some point. I may contribute another piece if I get around to it, too. It was great to delve into the story again and explore the illustrations—I hadn't done that since I was a kid!
Today's a fun day because Cory is posting a total of 20 illustrations! One every half hour until this evening! So hop on over a have a look at the amazing talent (and tribute) on display.
