Always sad to lose one of the visionaries of our time.

He was so delightfully grumpy. Rest in peace, Mr. Sendak!

My favorite Sendak quote:


Quote:
“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”

^^^Bwahaha! That story is hilarious!

Sad Sendak is gone. He had a tough life.

He's always been one of my favorites. My "In The Night Kitchen" print has adorned a wall in every kitchen I've had since living on my own. Love that book, and the other weird ones he did (surprise, I know) like "Outside Over There" and "Pierre" and the one about the kid in the dump, I forget the name.

"Some Swell Pup" should be required reading for every kid (or hell, adult) who would own a dog.

RIP, man.
