Check out Shaun Tan’s Tales from Outer Suburbia, a wiley collection of short stories. The entertaining and thoughtful musings are accompanied by a slew of clever and colourful (and I don’t mean just hues) illustrations.
The cover caught my eye at a book store a few months ago — my favourite characters include a cranky-looking water buffalo who will point you in the right direction, and Eric, a mysterious but very sweet little fella
Make sure that you also take the time to admire Tan’s “doodling” which covers both the inside front and back covers — some really charming stuff.
Today’s CSOTD (“Creative Something of the Day”) is most appropriate as I am ready to chow down on something myself right now ..
Would have added more details/shading but ran out of time!
