“With a Private Boat” by Alberto Cerriteño

Terrible Yellow Eyes is a collection of works inspired by Maurice Sendak’s beloved children’s book, Where the Wild Things Are. Illustrator and animator Cory Godbey created the project to pay tribute to and celebrate Sendak’s story about a young boy sailing to the land of the Wild Things and conquering its inhabitants.

Godbey invites artists to contribute works inspired by Sendak’s story, and each painting is new, exciting, and filled with adventure. Check out the full collection at here.

I recognized Alberto Cerriteño’s style right away! His stuff is so magical… Max seems like the perfect subject.

It looks like an interesting movie.

I’m especially drawn to that last one for some reason. :)

Luxurious and sharp. I like that everyones’ eyes are closed in the second illustration as it gives more attention to the smiles, frowns and teeth.

I see Where the Wild Things Are as more of an art film than a children’s film.

I’m a big fan of Cerriteno’s work. Thanks for sharing it here.
