Where the Wild Things Are - Inspired Art

I've been rolling the previous post around in my brain for the past few weeks now, and found it interesting that in the last two days, I came across children's book references associated with animated films.

Like this one, Terrible Yellow Eyes, a really cool collection of art inspired by Maurice Sendak's classic, "Where the Wild Things Are" (one of my favorites). Pascal Campion, one of the artists I met at WonderCon, and who has a great blog on which he posts new drawings daily, has two pieces up there. This project is also timely with the hype starting around the Spike Jonze live action film in the works, which actually looks really cool. (Sorry it doesn't fit on the page, but I figured better to see it bigger!)

I'm looking forward to that one. It'll have a lot to live up to, but I have faith in Spike Jonze's child instincts!

I also saw this post from Drawn! about Tom Warburton, creator of Cartoon Network’s Codename: Kids Next Door writing a new children's book that looks pretty cute.

Interesting how much the two genres coincide, isn't it?
