Illustrator/writer - Shaun Tan's beginnings

Everyone has to start somewhere! This snippet from award-winning children's book writer/illustrator, Shaun Tan:
'...to see if I could make a living as a freelance artist. I had actually been illustrating things while a student as way of making money – drawing for magazines, newspapers, book covers, music posters, flyers and newsletters, mostly around campus, plus selling the odd painting. I pretty much learned all my current illustration techniques through doing these small jobs.' See http://www.shauntan.net/faq1.html

I've just discovered Tan's beautiful website through the Narrative Writing for Youth unit.
