Buzz for Spike Jonze Where the Wild Things Are film adaptation has spread to New York, where the city is celebrating Maurice Sendak through several exhibitions and gallery showings. Sendak in Soho at the Animazing Gallery is just one of the opportunities out to see the famed illustrators work first hand. It is also a rare opportunity to bring some to your own home.

Included are drawings from the Wild Things, as well as commercial work and studies. A nice encapsulation of Sendak’s output.

Sendak in Soho runs through November 8, 2009 at 54 Green St., New York.

A few more examples of what’s on view at Animazing after the jump.
