Maurice Sendak

We are very sad to hear the news American writer and illustrator, Maurice Sendak, passed away today (Tuesday May 8 2012), aged 83.

Sendak is best known for his acclaimed children’s book ‘Where The Wild Things Are’, among other works.

Considered one of the most influential illustrators of the 20th century, Sendak’s highly original and hauntingly beautiful imagery is imprinted in the mind of mine and many other children of the 1960’s and onwards.

Here’s a rare interview with Mr Sendak, by TATE.

The film adaptation of ‘Where The Wild Things Are’, which Sendak helped produce, was released in 2009 to critical acclaim.

Coupled with the news of the passing of Adam Yauch (MCA of The Beastie Boys) on Friday, we have lost two of our absolute biggest (admittedly very different!) influences in a matter of days.

Both leave behind timeless work in their medium.
