Maurice Sendak died on Tuesday. 

He left behind a world of wild things, little bears, goblins, and mysterious night kitchens

Yesterday, Riswold asked us to create a fitting send-off for Sendak.

We decided to go back to the world he created for us. We painted the walls, cut up everything we could get our hands on, and made a total mess of the 12 space (sorry, Jinnina).

Sixteen hours later, we’d recreated one of Sendak’s most iconic settings. And in the spirit of his work, we made it so everyone could be part of that world.

It’s a bittersweet goodbye, but it’s the least we could do for the man who inspired us to forever be wild things.
