The latest essay, a love letter to Maurice Sendak...

Sendak is humorous, macabre, and an absolute delight. He's one of the most fierce and honest artists I know; to hear him speak about art, and about life and death is heartbreaking and calls you to love him even more.

'Tell Them Anything You Want' started with Spike discussing the film adaptation of 'Where The Wild Things Are' with Maurice. Whenever they spoke, on the phone or in person, it was vivid and full of things Spike wanted to remember, and Spike being Spike, the obvious thing to him was to bring a camera along.
