Thank you to all of the talented picture book imaginators for sharing their whimsical creations with us!

Runway: Where the Wild Pigs Party

9 Apr

This summer, Maurice Sendak will unveil his first authored/illustrated picture book in three decades. But Sendak sentinels to casual admirers won’t be kept in the dark, as the basis for “Bumble-Ardy” spawns from an animated short Sendak produced for Sesame Street.

Beyond “Where the Wild Things” and his comfortably bizarre illustrations, I’ve never been a fan of Sendak’s work. I prefer Mercer Mayer to guide me into the fantastical realm of dark imagination. Regardless, I’m looking forward to seeing what the 82 year old creative genius can do with an idea that has been sitting in the attic for as long as I’ve been living. As imaginators, we’re lucky to have such a legend alive in our life time kind enough to share.
