Monday, Monday

Have you had one of those days? The type of Monday that ruins Sunday, so that even the laziest Sunday afternoon is clouded by what follows that quiet egg-on-toast Sunday night? What every start to the working week needs is a little inspiration. Something that makes the weekday calendar stretch out in front of us like a magical carpet rather than an endless line of groundhog days. I’ve created a new category of posts that is dedicated to finding that soft, little, golden kernel of inspiration and pinning it down so that we can be propelled into the working week humming like the seven happy little worker dwarfs. Today I’m going to kick things off with the illustrations from where the wild things are, by Maurice Sendak. We all know the book, and the creepy Spike Jonze adaptation, but have you ever actually realised how beautiful it is? Here are a few samples of the illustrations, they’re bound to brighten your day with their muted, strange darkness.
