So a short time ago I was contacted by Cory Godbey, an artist I find inspirational and have followed for a while. He does amazing mixed media works and his work just seems to flow like liquid. I've had his link on my "check em" list for some time. Definitely Check em out!

Cory contacted me and told me about a little project he was (is still) putting together called Terrible Yellow Eyes. As it turns out he is putting together a tribute site to Maurice Sendak, creater/author/artist of the legendary Where the Wild Things Are and other works. Mr. Sendak is turning 81 shortly (June 10th) and Cory has asked a number of absolutely amazing artists to create pieces of artwork from his book as a Birthday Present to him. To be asked to join a project in the company of such amazing artists is a little overwhelming, but also a tribute to a children's book creator that I personally have found so much joy and inspiration out of his works is beyond discription. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity. Please check out the Terrible Yellow Eyes web site and see all the amazing works so far here.


Here is my contribution. I can only hope that it brings a smile to Mr. Sendak on his birthday.




Take care,

-Mike

I love this painting. The colors are amazing. Is there any way to buy a print of it for my little boys' bedroom? I have a friend who wants one too, but I couldn't find an email address or "shop" anywhere.
