Shaun Tan won an Academy Award for The Lost Thing, an animated film adaptation of his picture book. He has also written and illustrated other books such as The Red Tree and The Arrival, which won several awards. Tan's work is described as an "Australian vernacular" that is both familiar and strange.
He won the 2011 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award for his contributions to children's literature. Tan's work process involves using black and white mediums such as pens and inks before transitioning to color.
