I’ve already discussed how Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s story, Where the Wild Things Are, inspired me to travel as a kid, so I openly admit to counting down the days until the upcoming film comes out. But in the meantime, I’ve been entertaining myself by looking at the images submitted to director Spike Jonze’s website, in a contest called “Where the Wild Things Ought to Be.” Artists have placed the Wild Things in classic paintings, movie stills, Where’s Waldo? drawings, and even on Fox News. One of my favorites is Max on the The Great Wave, by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. He really looks like he’s a natural fit in the wilds of the ocean. You can see more of the submissions here.
