Author-Illustrator series

Episode #08: Shaun Tan


As part of the Art of the Book program, the Author-Illustrator online series explores the work of emerging and established author-illustrators and the creative processes that bring their art to life.

Shaun Tan works as an artist, writer, and filmmaker, and is well-known for his award-winning picture books, which feature fantastical illustrations and dream-like imagery. He has won an Academy Award for the adaptation of his picture book, The Lost Thing. In conversation with Sarah Davis, Shaun explores how he uses different media forms and design elements to achieve his surreal art style.
