"Childhood is cannibals and psychotics vomiting in your mouth!" Art Spiegelman drew his experience of hanging out with Maurice Sendak in 1993 for the New Yorker, and the magazine has "unlocked" the archival link in honor of Sendak's passing today.
(via Neil Gaiman)
BTW, the NYT scan is actually a decent resolution (click to enlarge) – which I realised after reading it : /
First the Fat Boys break up and now this? Sendak loved his german shepards, and so do I.
Thank you, Sendak.
I’m sure this conversation went on in the Spiegelman household that morning:
Art said, “Is there some way we can make Maurice’s death more about me?”
Francois said, “I have just the idea!”
