Wild Things for Maurice Sendak

Like so many families on this planet, the Miner clan has a very soft spot for “Where the Wild Things Are.” It’s one of the first books I remember reading to the girls when they were young … and we owned before they were even born. So, like many kids raised on the Wild Things, Pierre and Chicken Soup with Rice (my personal favorite), we mourn the passing of an amazing creator, Maurice Sendak. And, we hope to honor him with our art. (Coincidentally, in trying to emulate his intricate cross-hatching, I found a brand new respect for his talent. Whew! That’s a lot of work.)
