Artist Hannah Friederichs has created a beautiful tribute to the late Maurice Sendak, painting The Avengers comic book heroes in the style of the children’s book author. Click the photo embedded above to enlarge.

If you visit Friederichs’ page, you can download wallpaper versions of the drawing. On Tumblr, you can see some concept sketches and close-ups of the drawing.

Here’s more from the artist: “Two things on my mind today: RIP Maurice Sendak. Yay Avengers. Okay- I put together some wallpapers using the original- I tried to make them as big as possible and cover the major aspect ratios. You can download them here. Enjoy!” (Via io9)
