In memory of the late great American writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak, artist Hannah Friederichs conjures a delightful art featuring the Cinematic Avengers assembled.

Best known for his book Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak has been an inspirational source to many creators with this seminal work on children's literature. On May 8, 2012, Sendak passed away in Danbury, Connecticut, from complications of a stroke at the age of 83. Ever the hard-working creator, Sendak's final book, Bumble-Ardy, was published just eight months ago prior to his demise.

As both the child literature and graphic world mourned over the passing away of such a great mind in the field, artist Hannah Friederichs paid tribute to the legendary writer/artist with one of the hottest properties of late: Marvel Studios' The Avengers.

In the artist's own words:

Two things on my mind today-

RIP Maurice Sendak.

Yay Avengers.

Okay- I put together some wallpapers using the original- I tried to make them as big as possible and cover the major aspect ratios. You can download them here. Enjoy!

Also- I don’t have any plans to print it. The Avengers don’t belong to me, I feel like I got lucky, and I would rather share the nostalgia, you know?
