Maurice Sendak Petting the Nose of a Wild Thing


It's been a weird and sad week for childhood heroes. First Adam Yauch died, now, the famous author of "Where The Wild Things Are", Maurice Sendak, passed away Tuesday, at the of age of 83.

Maurice Sendak in 1985

Spike Jonze, who directed the movie adaption of “Where The Wild Things Are”, made a documentary together with Lance Bangs on the author titled “Tell Them Anything You Want: A Portrait of Maurice Sendak”. Taken from there here’s a quote:

I’m trying very hard to concentrate on what is here, what I can see, what I can smell, what I can feel. Making that the important business of life.

RIP Maurice Sendak.

    Só conheci outras obras dele recentemente, na adolescência, mas na infância gostava muito do desenhos dele.
    Valeu Maurice Sendak :)
