I AM OVER THE MOON!
My favorite illustrator ever to walk this great planet just won an Oscar for his short film adaptation of "The Lost Thing".
Truly I am ecstatic. He is the single most reason I have been considering studying for my PhD in Australia. I kid you not. I am so happy that the world will now see his amazing work.
THE LOST THING SHORT FILM WEBSITE
My favorites of his are listed in my list of my-all-time-favorite-books-ever-to-be-written-in-the-history-of-the-world but also "The Arrival" and "Tales of Outer Suburbia" are fantastic as well!
If you are interested in his PB work, I would recommend the 3-in-1 collection called "Lost and Found" (Contains my favorites and "Lost Thing") being released in the US March first!
