Coinciding with a recent launch of The Singing Bones at the Illustrationcupboard in London (where you can see a small range of original sculptures), and also Halloween, Waterstones have put together a little blog showing a few comparisons between pencil sketches and final sculptures: https://www.waterstones.com/blog/shaun-tan-the-grimm-sculptor

Russ the Story Bus

Presented by Sydney Writers’ Festival, Russ the Story Bus is a creative space where children can browse a library full of the latest children’s books, choose a book to take home, listen to a story or hear authors and illustrators talk about their craft. Russ is hitting the road from late October to December. This year the organisers decided to decorate the bus with Rules of Summer artwork, which is a terrific privilege: is there any better canvas than a mobile library? Find out more about Russ.
