The bird king, the anthropologists, the thing in the bathroom, the paraffin-oil koala, the secret birthday party… what do they all have in common? Nothing! Except for the fact that they all come from the sketchbooks of Shaun Tan, acclaimed creator of The Lost Thing, The Arrival and Tales from Outer Suburbia.

This fantabulous artefact is a collection of sketches, random jottings, preliminary designs for book, film and theatre projects, sketchbook pages and drawings from life. Each of these represent some aspect of a working process, whereby stories generally evolve from visual research and free-wheeling doodles. They are also ‘unfinished’ pieces created in a single sitting, not originally intended for publication, and for that reason perhaps more revealing of a personal style (and particular obsessions) than other more polished artwork.

Ooh! ¡Shaun Tan! Buá, tiene un estilo muy logrado e imaginativo, lo abarca todo éste señor (tanto en técnicas, como igualmente son las propias ilustraciones las que se apropian de todas las páginas, jeje)

Y, además, que la editorial Barbara Fiore tiene un catálogo alucinante de veras… Siempre que veáis un título de ésta editorial, si os interesa no lo dejéis pasar, porque muchos de ellos no existen traducidos al español (ni están de venta por éstos lares) más allá de la Editorial Barbara Fiore

Un saludo!
