Sendak

The comments of Maurice Sendak at the age of 80 (or so) have more passion, vigor and relevancy than most young animators (and those my age for that matter) than I can think of.
Listen and learn.

Video's been pulled.

I had a humorous Sendak encounter trying to get him to do illustration for a Japanese ad.

When I got him on the phone I was surprised to hear the "voice of god" sounding like an old Brooklyn Jew.

Shame they pulled it.
It was nice.

I heard another story that he went to Scholastic to give a lecture and told them all to stop publishing such shit.

Brian Elig said...

I wish it wasn't pulled. What did he talk about? Was he stickn' it to the man?

Elliot Cowan said...

Hey Brian.
He wasn't really sticking it to the man.
Mostly he was suggesting that he was happy that the film was scary, as kids deserve the experience and that he liked the film a lot.
