A big congrats to fellow illustrator (now also director) Shaun Tan.
Shaun won for the "Best Animated Short" based on his bestselling children's book "The Lost Thing". Donato Giancola, Greg Manchess, Irene Gallo and myself had the pleasure to have dinner a few years ago with Shaun. Those who know Shaun, know how unassuming and humble he is. I can't think of a better artist/ illustrator more deserving than Shaun.
