Inspiration for our Illustrating Children’s Books Students…

Monday’s interactive google doodle shows characters from Where the Wild Things Are, which is a 1963 children’s picture book by American writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak, who would have turned 85 on Monday 10th of June. The book tells the story of a boy called Max whose imagination takes him on a wild journey wrestling monsters in a far-off land before returning to his bedroom to find his supper waiting for him.

The doodle is an animation of the illustrations from this book and we think it has been done superbly, definitely an inspiration for our students who are completing our Illustrating Children’s Books Diploma. We have added a screen capture of Googles home page along with a You Tube video of the animation.
