Terrible Yellow Eyes

Nucleus Art Gallery in Alhambra is opening an exhibit displaying the physical pieces of art from a super cool blog by Cory Godbey. The show and blog, both titled Terrible Yellow Eyes, are inspired by Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are."

I grew up with this book. There was no way I could not do something for this. So here's the first piece I did titled Terrible Yellow Eye.


I thought it would be interesting if the Wild Thing that crowned Max king was also the one who ratted him out.

The second piece is called Wild Sea Thing Joins the Rumpus.


I always liked the sea serpent in the book and wondered what happened to him. I think he would be a big splasher. Both pieces were done with ink and watercolor.

The opening is this Saturday, September 19th, starting at 7pm. Should be fun! Hope to see you there.
