Illustration Inspiration – Shaun Tan

This illustrator is very different to the others that I have shared with you on my blog in the past. I love the darkness, the depth, the quirky details and beautiful tones.


I got an Amazon voucher for my birthday a few weeks ago and I spent some of it on Shaun Tan books including Lost Thing and The Bird King. The books a works of art, the details are incredible and the stories funny.


I love pencil work, it’s the kind of drawing I love doing most but I always think it looks unfinished. Tan’s work definitely doesn’t have that problem. It’s beautiful.


There is lots more awesomeness on Shaun’s website
