Maurice Sendak

Just a quick post to note the passing of a great illustrator.  Minutes ago I wrote on face book:
Maurice Sendak has been a hero of mine since his 1964 "Where the Wild Things Are" was published. His use of ink hatching with added color was an influence in much of my earliest work. His books figure prominently in my collection of illustrated books, several of them personally autographed when I saw him speak about his life as an artist.  This is a truly sad day for all those who value children's books in general and Sendak's ground breaking work in particular.  R.I.P. Mr. Sendak
