Interview with Shaun Tan

If you live in Britain you may have noticed in last week’s Saturday Guardian the conversation between Neil Gaiman and Shaun Tan. It took me a little bit longer to catch up with it, as our little one was having her first tummy bug. However, I thought the interview was worth sharing and found it here online for you.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Shaun Tan’s work, here are a few of my personal favourites:

Tales From Outer Suburbia: ‘water buffaloes are like that; they hate talking.’

Tales From Outer Suburbia: ‘The fire burned with astonishing intensity.’

The Red Tree: ‘Darkness overcomes you’

Most recently he attracted attention with the beautiful animation of his book ‘The Lost Thing’, that also won an OSCAR (best short animated film). Have a look at his website to watch the trailer.

I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do.
