Bee Eater (2010)

 Pencil on paper

21 x 29.7 cm (8.2"x11.6")


Originally published in The Bird King (2010). This was a very early concept drawing for the picture book Rules of Summer, following a particular thread about two siblings building their own pets from recycled junk.

Shaun Tan grew up in Perth and works as an artist, writer and filmmaker in Melbourne. He is best known for illustrated books that deal with social, political and historical subjects through dream-like imagery: The Rabbits, The Red Tree, Tales from Outer Suburbia and the graphic novel The Arrival have been widely translated throughout the world and enjoyed by readers of all ages. Shaun has also worked as a theatre designer and a concept artist for Pixar. In 2011 he received the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in Sweden, in recognition of his services to literature for young people.
