Sneak a peek into the creative process of accomplished and prolific illustrator, Shaun Tan, through this thoughtfully curated collection of sketches, both finished and unfinished. The Bird King: an artist’s notebook not only showcases Tan’s quirky, imaginative style with its abundance of mechanical creatures and surrealistic scenarios, but also demonstrates his high degree of technical skill with a variety of studies from life. Alongside the sketches are some of Tan’s handwritten notes, as well as longer explanatory pages, which help the reader to pull it all together.
