Terrible Yellow Eyes is a collection of artist’s work inspired by Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book, Where The Wild Things Are. The website is full of imaginative interpretations of the book’s characters, settings and story.

A classic project from Naoto. The set also included a kiwi and strawberry version, all really great stuff.
A well known artist from the UK, Stezaker works with iconic images found in books, magazines, and postcards. He builds collages from them, creating interesting relationships between the overlapping photographs. You can see more of his work on ‘The Approach’ gallery website.
The End is a flickr photo pool strictly about end title sequences from movies. Sometimes funny, other times just plain cool; The End is definitely worth a look if you’re into typography, film, or dreamy ladies applying lipstick.
