About Shaun Tan

Shaun Tan grew up in Perth. In school he became known as the 'good drawer' which partly compensated for always being the shortest kid in every class. Shaun began drawing and painting images for science fiction and horror stories in small-press magazines as a teenager, and has since become best known for illustrated books that deal with social, political and historical subjects through surreal, dream-like imagery.

The Red Tree (2001), The Arrival (2008), Tales from Outer Suburbia (A&U, 2008).
