Quirky Illustrations

Whilst browsing the bookshelves of Farrell's books I stumbled upon the illustrations of Shaun Tan. When an artist's work piques my interest I just have to find out more about them. His website gave me plenty of rich fodder.
He is a Perth boy who now works in Melbourne as a freelance artist. His illustrated story books are quirky and detailed. A couple of these are on my "must have" list. A short animated film has just been released in DVD and I might just have to put that on the list as well. It is called "the Lost Thing" and is narrated by Tim Minchin.
