The late Maurice Sendak of ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ fame recently passed away and illustrator Andy Rash is already paying his respects to the popular author by drawing a pixelated picture of Sendak with his most well-known creation. Rash has also rendered tribute pictures for the recently deceased Adam “MCA” Yauch, Dick Clark, Davy Jones of The Monkees and Mike Wallace, responding in a timely manner to the tragic losses of beloved media figures.

Each of Andy Rash’s cartoon drawings have a distinct faux low resolution look to them that has become a signature trait of the illustrator’s style. Even with the restriction of limited pixels, Rash still manages to capture the physical likeness of the stars he’s honoring. Stats for Pixelated Posthumous Tributes Trending: Older & Mild
