About this product
- DescriptionI'm often wary of using the word 'inspiration' to introduce my work -- it sounds too much like a sun shower from the heavens, absorbed by a passive individual enjoying an especially receptive moment. While that may be the case on rare occasions, the reality is usually far more prosaic. Staring at a blank piece of paper, I can't think of anything original. I feel utterly uninspired and unreceptive. It's the familiar malaise of 'artist's block' and in such circumstances there is only one thing to do: just start drawing. -- Shaun Tan And when Shaun Tan starts drawing, the results are stunning. In <i>The Bird King: An Artist's Notebook</i>, we find a window into the creative process: the stops and starts, the ideas that never took off, and the ones that grew into something much bigger. Fans of <i>The Arrival</i> will recognize the quirky, surreal sensibility that is so distinctly Shaun Tan in this stunning collection, and gain insight into how his many gorgeous books were made.
- Author BiographyShaun Tan is the author and illustrator of the award-winning, bestselling graphic novel <i>The Arrival</i>, and also <i>Tales from Outer Suburbia</i>, a collection of illustrated short stories. Both books were named to the <i>New York Times</i> list of Best Illustrated Children's Books. He won an Oscar for his short film The Lost Thing based on a story in the book <i>Lost & Found: Three by Shaun Tan</i>, and he is also the recipient of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award of his contribution to children's literature. Shaun Tan lives in Melbourne, Australia.
