After a weekend at the CBI conference, the icing of the cake was a special invitation to morning coffee and cake with Shaun Tan!
Lots of happy illustrators(see pic!) crowded into the CBI offices and Mags Walsh of Children's Books Ireland just left us to it. So great to just talk pictures and hang out. Shaun lives in Melbourne, Australia so had come a long way for the coffee!
I was just delighted to meet him. I am a huge fan since Marie-Lousie Fitzpatrick showed me Shaun's books in 2002 when she came back from her trip to Australia. His work is truely amazing. I am in total awe!
