Where The Wild Things Are

This must be one of my favourite stories of all time. And it's Ben's. Lucky for him they're doing it in Drama at school at the moment. He had to design a poster and he was pleased as pie with it when it was finished. Have to admit I was extremely proud of him, so I asked him if I could share it with the world here:

Here's the whole picture:

Here's the boat complete with a sausage sandwich in detail:

And here's the hammock complete with coconuts, a skull and some odd foot prints in the sand:

I only helped him a teeny weeny bit with the shading.

  1. Well done Ben - that's extremely good. I like that story too....

  2. I remember that story from when Toby was little.
    Congratulations Ben, I think you have done a fantastic piece of work here, you have definately inherited your Mums artistic talent.
    I look forward to seeing more of your work here.
