Those of you who have read my blog from the beginning might remember this post about extraordinary author and artist, Shaun Tan. He is one of my creative heroes – and I am honored to be published by the same UK publisher, Templar Publishing.

There was brilliant news for Shaun this week when his short animated film, The Lost Thing, was nominated for an Academy Award. This film, based on the picture book of the same name, apparently took nine years to complete!

The website is beautiful and contains a movie trailer. To see it, click here – then enjoy Shaun’s stunning artwork and original ideas.
