news and works in progress from Shaun Tan
Hi, Shaun, I really like this! Cheers, Sadami
Thanks Sadami. It's based on a sketch for a very early graphic-novel version of Rules of Summer, which did not work at all in the layout of the final picture book, though I still like it very much. One of those many 'orphan' illustrations left behind at the end of a project, part of the bigger submerged iceberg.
"Illustrators draw lots to publish little," I've learned. This Oct, I can give life to my orphans, piled up unselected works to come up in the first solo exhibition. Helen, Books Illustrated and Libby will come. I thank millions for all the people and YOU. You encouraged me when I started a career. Best wishes, Sadami
