The management asked for an eye-catching sign which would inform our customers that the store would now be open later. So I came up with one of my creatures, a cross between an owl and a cat. It ended up looking a lot like the creations of Maurice Sendak, one of America's most beloved book illustrators. I hope this will appeal to the Trader Joe customer, who probably has children who read and look at Sendak's books.
Trader Joe's Sendak Tribute is ink on card stock, about 10" x 8", July 14, 2014. Scanned in and colored in Photoshop. PS Note: Helpful friends have shown me how to reset the Photoshop crop tool and it is restored to working correctly again.
