Congratulations, Shaun Tan!
February 28th, 2011
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
I had the pleasure of meeting Tan briefly in New York in 2009, not long after The Arrival was released.
Tan famously realized only halfway through The Arrival that he was working on a graphic novel. Fortunately, so did the rest of us, and it’s won many well-deserved honors since. Congratulations to Tan for racking up another great honor, this time in the field of animation.
Tan’s personal site is here. More on the film here.

This was one of my favorite books in our primary school library. It had so much style.
