I liked reading through the tributes to Maurice Sendak at TCJ.com. Here’s a drawing I did for the page
also: I loved this aside from Seth’s tribute:
“Several years after that, R. O. Blechman made some offhand comment to me about my name having passed casually between the him and Sendak. Nothing extraordinary. Just a remark.
Upon hearing that I felt that odd feeling that you never lose–no matter how old you get–a feeling of wonder. A profound sense of the impossibility that such distant mythical creatures — demigods from your youth (a Sendak or a Blechman ) could have somehow spoken YOUR name when you weren’t around! How did it ever happen?”
