To celebrate the launch of Shaun Tan’s latest book, Creature, join ACMI Senior Education Programmer Susan Bye in conversation with the internationally renowned, award winning illustrator, author and filmmaker.
In this special event, we’ll dive into Shaun’s practices, favourite projects and his new book – Creature.
Light refreshments beverages will be provided by Karen Martini’s Hospitality M team.
The drawings and paintings in the book come from his work in picture books and other works including films and graphic novels. Others were created for no specific purpose beyond the desire to see what something looks like, or just to follow a sketched line to see where it goes. Many works are previously unpublished. As the title suggests the collection and accompanying essays by Shaun explore his use of non-human creatures as a motif throughout his artwork.
Shaun Tan is an Australian artist, writer and film maker. He won an Academy Award for The Lost Thing, a 2011 animated film adaptation of a 2000 picture book he wrote and illustrated. Other books he has written and illustrated include Eric and The Arrival.
