Wendell is hands down the greatest homeless fashion designer who ever lived. He makes almost all his clothes from things he finds. I hadn’t seen him in awhile, so I was quite thrilled to walk up on him Tuesday, doing this to a Gandhi statue.
Dear Broadway: hire this man.

I don’t get home from work until 7pm each night, which means I have just an hour or two to spend with the boys.
I used to wish I had more time to work on my projects and to relax. Now, I wish I had more time to spend with my kids.
Yet, I continue to work my ass off so that one day I won’t have to work my ass off. And that day, my boys and I will build the most incredible Hot Wheels track in the history of the universe.
I can relate 1000%.
You Can't Pay the Bills with Publicity -
I won’t accept publicity in lieu of payment. The bank refuses the check every time I try to pay my mortgage with that fluff.
There are more great resources waiting for you:
TODAY is the 50th Anniversary of the beloved classic Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. First published in 1963, it has sold more than 16 million copies worldwide.
The New York Times obituary for Maurice Sendak calls Where the Wild Things Are “simultaneously genre-breaking and career-making,” describing Sendak as being “…widely considered the most important children’s book artist of the 20th century, who wrenched the picture book out of the safe, sanitized world of the nursery and plunged it into the dark, terrifying and hauntingly beautiful recesses of the human psyche.”
One of the most talked about interviews we’ve ever done was with Maurice Sendak in 2011 shortly before he died. Sendak reflects on love, loss, and celebrating life:
I have nothing now but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more. … What I dread is the isolation. … There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.
And if you haven’t seen it yet, The New York Times did an amazing illustration to accompany our emotional interview with Sendak.
Happy 50th, Mr. Sendak. The world needs more creators like you. You are sorely missed.
