Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Maurice Sendak's first publication, the people behind Illustrakids are working on a tribute exhibition featuring illustrators from all over the world. And I'm in it.
Sendak's work has been rethought by tons of artists over the years, so I tried for something different: This is an imagined album cover for the Wild Rumpus that took place the night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another.
Also, I've turned all the monsters into kids in monster suits (at first I intended to include Max himself as a giant wolf, but he was cut off in the end).
Hope you like it!
