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.
