Where The Wild Things Are and In The Night Kitchen, Gene Deitch and Maurice Sendak, 1987

“I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can't stop them. They leave me and I love them more.”

― Maurice Sendak

I am deeply, deeply saddened to hear of the passing yesterday of Maurice Sendak.

He was an inspiration to me, and to so many. He wrote books for children, but he understood that children were people, with complex inner lives that were sometimes strange and frightening. He never talked down to them - to us, after all, we were some of those children. He was wild and brave and honest and we loved him for it.

Here are animated versions of his classic tales Where the Wild Things Are and In The Night Kitchen, books we loved and thoroughly mauled.

Rest in peace, Mr. Sendak. And thank you, thank you so much.

Because, Cyriak Harris, 2012

cyriak harris @cyriakharris 24 Apr Working on a new video, not sure what the hell its about but it made after effects crash, which I see as a good thing.

When After Effects crashes on me,it generally takes little pieces of my soul/ about 3 hours off my life. But that cheerful Cyriak is always accentuating the positive.

Welcome To Your Future, Thomas Berkley, 2012

I got a lovely email from Thomas Berkley letting me know he'd finished another short.

I love it when y'all just send me your animation. You are so talented, and it makes my job so much easier.
