Where the Wild Things Are by matthewart Where the Wild Things Are by matthewart
I painted this one for the Terrible Yellow Eyes Blog ([link]) and because Maurice Benard Sendak (he whos shoes I am unworthy to tie) is one of the greatest artists to ever live. I still have my old Where the Wild Things book... it has a lot of my 3 year old self pencil doodle monsters!!!

Will you ever offer this as a print?  I just checked your shop and there are only 3 prints available, and this is not one of them.  :(

oh, this was on drawergeeks.com, wasn't it?

saved it from there i guess, and it was my wallpaper for a few weeks... I've always been in love with this painting.
luckily, i was looking for mike maihak on deviantart and i saw this on his faves!
:heart:

i'm happy two times now. hehe.
