Where the wild things are.

Terrible Yellow Eyes is a visual love letter to the great work that is Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. Soon to be released as a movie, the original book inspires fear, courage, curiosity and most of all imagination in all who read it. The art works displayed on Terrible Yellow Eyes range from the whimsical to fear-inducing, but so do the emotional reactions to the story.

Each image is viewable in a large, high-resolution version so you can see all the lucious details. Here are a smattering of favorites, but everything on the site is worth a look:

"The point is, [Sendak's] children do survive. They always survive. They look horror in the face and walk by with a sniff." - Jonathon Jones (The Guardian)
