Where Are Those Wild Things? by boum Where Are Those Wild Things? by boum
My boyfriend's niece turned four this week, and she's crazy about Maurice Sendak's Where The Wild Things Are, so I figured I'd craft her something personal instead of buying something. I found my grandfather's ink kit in a shelf and decided to give it a try, and I had a lot of fun. It's like super concentrated watercolours, the pigments are intense, truly a thing I'll use again in the future.

So yeah, a Max and KW fanart, that I gave her framed. I don't know how well she registered that I made it especially for her, but I got a shy hug (I've only seen her a couple of times so far), so that alone made the whole thing worth it.

I hope you like!

Ow, that´s so sweet :)...Once I was asked to draw a Spiderman picture for a little boy and I didn´t see his reaction over it, but I thought that such a young kid would be more happy about a toy he can grab and "use"...It´s nice to hear that the little girl appreciated this kind of gift :)...

BTW: May I ask what kind of paper did you use for the inks? They are rather liquidy and make wrinkles on the paper, so I am wondering how it worked for you...

I used Bristol board, taped to the table while I was applying the ink. It's sturdy enough not to wrinkle, but if it's not taped it might bend a little :)

This is just too charming. I feel like if Maurice were to recreate the illustration style for his book, they would look something similar to this.

I love how a book that's just a little over 20 yrs is still holding strong in the childrens book section. Its rad :]

It's adorable! I like that it has a bit of a childish look to it, almost as a child would draw it (but obviously not.) Even if she doesn't quite get it now, I'm sure she'll appreciate it later.
I know I would!

L'encre donne énormément de force au design et complète bien la ligne, très graphique. Il est temps que je me remette à l'encre !
