news and works in progress from Shaun Tan
this is wonderful - the sea is alive, while the cloud is a hat with a father in - clouds are always something as well as a cloud.
A hat with a father in! No that is a bit much - how about a 'feather' instead.
'The cloud is a hat with a father in', a lost manuscript of ancient Japan. A wonderful phrase actually - how many story ideas begin life as typos?
......At the risk of sounding like a crazed fan, thank you for keeping an up to date blog. There are other artists I admire too and they always seem to drop off the face of the earth after only a few entries. As an art student, I really look up to you. Your paintings and books are a huge inspiration! ..okay, I'll stop being a "crazed fan" now. Have a great day.
Much appreciated, I'll do my best to keep it up!
