Today’s drawing is a little later than usual because yesterday I was suffering through the worst stomach bug I have ever had. Bah humbug.
“People say, ‘Oh, Mr. Sendak. I wish I were in touch with my childhood self, like you!’ As if it were all quaint and succulent, like Peter Pan. Childhood is cannibals and psychotic vomiting in your mouth! I say, ‘You are in touch, lady–you’re mean to your kids, you treat your husband like shit, you lie, you’re selfish … That is your childhood self!’” —Maurice Sendak
Thanks for sending this Lynne!
