Maurice Sendak (1928-2012) From Zlateh the Goat and Other Stories (1966) by Isaac Bashevis Singer. 
Sendak spoke to Nick Meglin about some of the influences on his drawing in The Art of Humorous Illustration (1973). “Many of the artists who influenced me were illustrators I accidentally came upon. I knew the Grimm’s Fairy Tales illustrated by George Cruikshank. I just went after everything I could put my hands on illustrated by Cruikshank and copied his style. It was quite as simple as that. I wanted to crosshatch the way he did. Then I found Wilhelm Busch and I was off again. But happily Wilhelm Busch also crosshatched so the Cruikshank crosshatching wasn’t entirely wasted. And so an artist grows. I leaned very heavily on these people. I developed taste from these illustrators”.  - Maurice Sendak
