The death of Maurice Sendak has sent ripples of sadness throughout the world -- fellow authors and illustrators of all ages have equally felt the loss as much as the generations of children who grew up exploring his unique and complex worlds. As a continued tribute to the late author, The New York Times has brought together a slide show of cartoons expressing the emotions of artists in a way they know best. These individuals, which included Art Spiegleman, Geoff McFetridge, Bob Staake, Tomi Ungerer, Jon Klassen, Marc Rosenthal, and Gary Taxali,  were inspired by Sendak's imagination as much as the rest of us.
