Whew, finally finished this thing! I started this piece well before the movie came out, and am just now finishing the pencil drawing. I feel like I'm late for the party, seeing all the great Where The Wild Things Are art that's popped up over the last month or two. October was crazy busy for me, but I'm hoping to get a lot more posts done in November. I've got some promo ideas in the hopper, and a website to finish.
Went a little crazy with the crosshatching on this piece in an effort to really study the lines of Mr. Sendak. Doing him justice is no simple task. ON TO COLOR! Nails in coffins and what not.
