Sunday Morning
Oil on board
30 x 25 cm (11.8"x9.8")
This was a concept sketch, originally created for an unrealised sculptural project, that subsequently fed into ideas for Shaun’s collection of recently published animal stories Tales from the Inner City (Allen & Unwin, 2018), namely the story ‘snail’ which is more or less about a collision of public debate with private sex lives (in this case, of giant, amorous molluscs).

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.
