news and works in progress from Shaun Tan
Hello there, I'm a massive fan of your artwork (probably your biggest in the UK!!). I love art and drawing myself and I often find myself trying to emulate your style or draw creatures from my imagination. In addition to this I also like watercolour landscape painting and experimenting with different styles, particularly more abstract ones. I have seen on your website the book "What miscellaneous abnormality is that?" and I have always loved the drawings that are supplied as previews on the website. Unfortunately I was still quite young when it was discontinued and thus was never able to get it, but I would greatly appreciate being able to see the rest of the drawings, or possibly obtaining a copy from somewhere because I love your work so much!! I am sure many people hold the same view as me that the book would be very popular if released again as it would be a great addition to the extremely imaginative and original array of books which you have produced. Sorry about writing such a long comment, but I really would love to be able to see the rest of the book!Kind regards,Joshua Langfield
Thanks for that feedback; yes, I've occasionally thought of getting that tiny book republished, so your comment reminds me this is not such a bad idea (thanks!) Might look into it... In the meantime maybe I'll post some of the critters to this blog so you can see them.
Oh great that would be wonderful!! From what I've seen of the book they look very interesting and would certainly make a great addition to the backstory of the development of The Lost Thing. Thank you very much for replying as well!!
