I fell in love with Shaun Tan's work when I read The Arrival
many months ago. Recently I picked up copies of Tales from Outer Suburbia
and Lost & Found
. I find his control of characters and narrative stunning, his artistry and color use captivating, and his little doodles and absurd designs hilarious. Anyone else enjoying his works?
You can find his website at http://www.shauntan.net/
, and find a good number of samples of his artwork in the Picture Books section.
If you haven't seen anything written or illustrated by Tan, I suggest you do.
