Tribute to a "Wicked Angel"

James Marshall is my hero. So is his "cousin"/pen name Edward Marshall, a pseudonym he created to bypass contract obligations when he created the Fox series. The depth of character Marshall created with his deceptively simple lines and spare yet rich text thrill me. He was the master of the picture book form. I found this lovely tribute written by his friend Maurice Sendak. Perhaps you've heard of him? I felt compelled to share, and hope that you enjoy it.

In the meantime, I'll keep cracking the whip. Caffeinate, write, revise- in that order.

Have a lovely, creative day!
