Where the Wild Things Are

Made these for a loyal Where the Wild Things Are fan, in time for him to wear them to the premiere of the new Spike Jonze film. One particular challenge for this pair was replicating Maurice Sendak's artistic style in marker. From what I can tell, Sendak used colored pencil and acrylic paint to illustrate the original book, mediums which either lead to smoothly blended colors or many sketchy thin lines. Marker is good for neither.
