I’m thrilled to place in this week’s contest. I received 1st Runner Up!
My Wild Things were beat out by an endearing image of Bert & Ernie. How cool is that?
This was my tribute to Maurice Sendak and to gay marriage.
Françoise Mouly and Nadja Spiegelman commented the following:
The overwhelming outpouring of love after Maurice Sendak’s death makes any remembrance of him poignant. Maurice Sendak wasn’t closeted but neither was he a Gay activist. We had to talk about whether it would be fair to use his characters to represent Gay marriage. But he was, after all, always an advocate for being true to yourself.
Lots of fun and thoughtful images to see in the gallery. Don’t miss #9, #28 and #48. And I wasn’t the only person to think of Sendak — see #38!
