How often do things line up this perfectly? A very close friend of mine had a child this past Christmas and named him Max. That makes this year Max's very first Halloween. So what better way to wish him well than with a drawing of Maurice Sendak's Max in his Wild Thing costume?
The front of the card shows Max whooping it up, and below my greeting on the inside is one of the Wild Things. They were both done in ink and watercolor. Now we play the waiting game to see if Max's dad hangs onto this thing for another five years so his son can read it. I'll let you know. -v
