Wild Things

I am so excited about Where the Wild Things Are. Heck, I’m excited about the trailer. Spike Jonze, Dave Eggers, hand-drawn type, natural lighting and the Arcade Fire? What’s not to like?

It’s adapted from the classic by Maurice Sendak, which plays, I think, a special part in a lot of our psyches, especially the visual artists among us. To back up this hunch, I offer you some selections from Cory Godbey’s curated collection of Where the Wild Things Are inspired artworks, Terrible Yellow Eyes.
