|Human co-workers no like cicada. Oil, 40x50cm|
More notes about the making of this book are now available on my website (under Picture Books). Many thanks from readers who have so enthusiastically embraced – and identified with – the plight of this little bug, a character I've been drawing and sculpting on and off for the past decade.

I have an exhibition of Lost Thing art running through May at Beinart Gallery, Brunswick Melbourne, which marks 20 years since I first sat down and began drawing and writing the rambling tale that eventually became the book and film. The show includes a selection of some of my favourite working drawings, storyboard sketches and new lost thing art, from 1998 to 2018. You can find out more about it here: https://beinart.org/shaun-tan-solo-exhibition-lost-found/
