Terrible Yellow Eyes

It's Illustration Tuesday. Certainly one of the most enjoyable things about picture books is the wide range of illustration styles. There are so many artists and so many visions. Ever looked at a book and wondered how a different illustrator would have handled it? Corey Godbey's site, Terrible Yellow Eyes, is his collection of works inspired by Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. He invited artists to do their own versions of the book's scenes and characters. The pieces are tributes to the original, each picture in the (dozens of) contributing artists' own unique style. It is amazing. Take your time looking here.
