A Reminder: Don’t Forget to Re-Sendakify Sendak!
The rules are simple. Reinterpret a famous scene from any Maurice Sendak book in the style of another famous children’s picture book artist. Perhaps you’d like to do Pierre ala Ezra Jack Keats or Outside Over There in the style of Marcia Brown. All power to you. Whatever you prefer, if you think this is a fun notion send me a scan of your idea and I’ll cull together a post filled with some of the different submissions and post the results on the anniversary of the publication of Where the Wild Things Are (October sumthin’ sumthin’). And if you want to do it in the style of someone living (Mo Willems, Kevin Henkes, etc.) it could be fun but let it be on your head. Admittedly, last time Dan Santat did a Jon Klassen that was absolute perfection.
See our previous post on how to Re-Seussify Seuss if you’ve any questions.
All submissions must be received at Fusenumber8@gmail.com by April 30st.
