International Monster’s Day has come and gone…

May 8, 2012

UPDATE!!! I posted this about five minutes before I heard Maurice Sendak had passed. Now, maybe we should declare TODAY International Monster Day. RIP, Maurice. Your monsters rocked!

I need a better calendar. Apparently this past Saturday was International Monster’s Day. How official is this holiday you ask? Well, probably just as official as monsters themselves. Which probably explains why the special date wasn’t covered on the news or celebrated by a “monster-fest” on AMC Saturday morning.

Whether it counts as a day off for the working class or it means a vacation for every kid who fears the boogie man, I happen to think International Monster’s Day is a cool holiday. If only I had known about it a little sooner. I’ve set the reminder on my calendar

monster, child, kid, girl, spooky, scary, funny, illustration, Maurice Sendak

Hiding a monster isn’t easy.

for next year, International Monster’s Day. I won’t miss you again.

Here is an illustration for International Monster’s Day. This is a reworked image from a few years ago. Hope you all enjoy it! 🙂
