Recommended Viewing:
Sonny Gerasimowicz on WTWTA

This is twelve minute chat with Sonny Gerasimowicz, the artist who visually translated the drawings in the WTWTA book into the monster suits you see in WTWTA the movie. In this behind-the-scenes PR clip, Gerasimowicz talks about growing up an art fiend, whoring himself out to Hollywood, working with Maurice Sendak, and what it’s like to be a Wild Thing.
(Spoiler alert: In the WTWTA film, the Wild Things are actually people in suits and NOT monsters. Bummer, huh? Anyway, Gerasimowicz was the man in the Alexander suit.)
