Where The Wild Doodlers Are: Google Celebrates Maurice Sendak’s Birthday

Google‘s home page is adorned with one of its graphical doodles in honor of what would have been children’s author Maurice Sendak‘s 85th birthday. The animated short clip is one of the more complex doodles yet. It is based on the illustrations for Sendak’s famous book Where The Wild Things Are, along with story elements from In The Night Kitchen and Bumble-Ardy.

About the author

I'm covering the science/tech/generally-exciting-and-innovative beat for Fast Company. Follow me on Twitter, or Google+ and you'll hear tons of interesting stuff, I promise. I've also got a PhD, and worked in such roles as professional scientist and theater technician...thankfully avoiding jobs like bodyguard and chicken shed-cleaner (bonus points if you get that reference!)
