Congratulations to Shaun Tan!


A couple of years ago, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting and interviewing Shaun Tan. Shaun's a charming, humble, and incredibly talented artist, and he's created one of the most stunning graphic novels of the past few years, The Arrival. As of last night, he's also an Academy Award winner! Congratulations to him for winning for his wonderful film The Lost Thing, based on his equally wonderful book. Shaun has to be one of the nicest guys ever to win an Oscar, and he's definitely deserving of it!
