Avengers on Parade (RIP Maurice Sendak) by AgarthanGuide Avengers on Parade (RIP Maurice Sendak) by AgarthanGuide
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 donít have any plans to print it. The Avengers donít belong to me, I feel like I got lucky, and I would rather share the nostalgia, you know?

On the far right side of the page is a download button. It contains very high resolution images in a few different aspect ratios to be used for desktops. If you would like to have one printed from those files, you have my blessing. I use fedEX Kinkos, and have always gotten very acceptable results.

Tom Hiddleston and Joe Hill both saw fit to tweet this. I just can't...

All the feels. You guys are all just so great!

Where can I find the illustration this is based on?

Well, it wasn't based off of any one particular Maurice Sendak piece.  It's bits and pieces of all the books I grew up with by him.  He has a lot of parades and processions in his work, but I'd have to say the one that stands out the most to me is the only mural he's ever worked on.  I'm not sure it has a name.  Maybe search "Maurice Sendak Mural." But there is also a parade in "Where the Wild Things Are."  And my favorite work by him is "In the Night Kitchen."

I saw that mural at the Rosenbach Museum in Philly.

Isn't it great?  The mural, I mean?  For some reason, it's the lady with the flag that always gets me.  He made a point of making her high-heeled shoes too big, you know?  They are all, _we_ are all, just kids playing dress up.  

Damn, I love that.

This is absolutely stunning! I wish I could draw, lol - I had something in mind that looks so much like this for Supernatural's upcoming season. It's an awesome tribute to both Sendak and the Avengers. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely piece with us! <3
