Where the Wild Things Art

If you think there's a typo - or obsolete usage - in the heading above, there isn't! I'm making a bit of a pun actually, because a group of artists have compiled some whimsical and wonderful artwork inspired by the Maurice Sendak classic, Where the Wild Things Are. You can see the art yourself, at this website WildArt. The work is also a gallery show. All part of the excitement leading up to the release of the movie on October 16th. Many thanks to Rita Crayon Huang, rita'sblog who posted the link on Facebook.

Next up - right here - an interview with a talented teen who is writing his own sci-fi novel, and more interviews with kids on what books they're reading and why. And my new rainforest painting - currently undergoing a few last minute touch-ups - will be posted soon.

Such an awesome gallery show! And, as a bonus, the winner of this year's SCBWI Summer Conference Portfolio show, Israel Sanchez, has a great piece in it. The gallery really made it clear to me how powerful _story_ can be.

Okay, that's really FUN! I missed Rita's facebook plug, so I'm so happy to catch it here!
Namaste,
Lee

That show was so amazing. I was enthralled, knowing so many people loved this book as I did and were expanding its world. It really changed my understanding of what I was looking at, too, when I went back to the blog. :)
