Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence, whether much that is glorious, whether all that is profound, does not spring from disease of thought, from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.

Be very, very careful what you put into that head, because you’ll never, ever get it out.

A new piece I created for Julia Rothman’s upcoming book The Who, the What and the When: 65 Artists Illustrate the Secret Accomplices of History, (Chronicle).
I was assigned Maurice Sendak’s brother Jack, a writer, collaborator and extremely important figure in Maurice’s life. I can really relate to those magical, safe spaces siblings create together. My own sister has been such a big source of inspiration, I quite literally don’t know who I would be without her. 
BIG thanks to Julia for asking me to be a part of this project. I am so excited to see all of the amazing contributions come together! I am already so WOW’d by my friend Jensine’s piece.
