Maurice Sendak - Self Portrait

Each piece of art could then be found, as well as reproduced easily and quickly.

I first met Maurice in the 1990's when he was looking for someone to photograph, scan, catalog and organize his artwork and art collection. He had one of the world's largest Mickey Mouse collections, as well as a world class collection of books, artwork, furniture, sculpture and ephemera totaling over 15,000 objects in five different locations. I archived, catalogued and crossed referenced all of the items in each location, making the otherwise overwhelming number of items safe, available and useful. I also oversaw and managed frequent loan requests from the collection.

In addition, I created highly accurate color corrected printouts for his new creative projects, and provided TV ready images and materials for interviews and special events.

I had the privilege of working steadily with Maurice for over 15 years.
