And they gnashed their terrible teeth...

On a completely unrelated note, I stumbled across this site today:

It appears to be an online community art project featuring works inspired by Maurice Sendak's timeless children's classic, Where the Wild Things Are, which just happens to be one of my favorite books of all time. The artwork is phenomenal, the story is engaging, and I think there's something very relatable about Max's character. I know I have my days where I just want to put on my wolf suit and sail off until I find an island of my own... but that's another story entirely.

Head on over to Terrible Yellow Eyes and check out some of the artwork, and read more about their art project. I found myself drawn in by the variety of style and approach to capturing moments from the familiar tale, familiar characters. Pretty cool stuff.

Also cool stuff is that we're now 9 weeks away from the release of the film also based on the book, and I'm quite stoked to see that as well. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint. Check out the official trailer here, or embedded below.

"And now," cried Max, "let the royal rumpus start!"

(Have a great weekend!)
