Hi, Friends, what sort of image do you have about Winston Churchill? I read his biography lots at high school and had interest in Winston Churchill.

The Quotable Winston Churchill has been updated and expanded to join our growing list of deluxe classic minis! Featuring a faux leather binding with embossed type and illustration to match the distinctive series look, Winston Churchill includes a new enlightening introduction and select speeches reprinted in full to complete this new deluxe edition. There are a few themes in the book such as Churchill on Life, Churchill at War, Churchill and His Contemporaries, etc.


I admire Winston Churchill's beautiful English sentences, colourful life, unique character and brilliant humour.

"We are all worms. 
But I believe that I am a glow-worm." 
Winston Churchill

His humour is truly nice! The below is quite a famous episode included in the book. 

Lady Nancy Astor to Churchill:
Winston, if you were my husband, I’d put arsenic in your morning coffee,
Madam, if you were my wife, I’d drink it.

My favorite one is serious,
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.
His say often inspires readers, encourages the weary and lifts up us with laugh and hope.
If you want to read more, please purchase books.

The American project team is really nice and kind to backup me in Australia. I'd say special thanks for the team and involved people. Really a wonderful and precious experience.

Also, my picture book dummy goes very well and wins a unanimous support at the publisher's meeting today. Wow, I'm soooo happy! When Editor's detailed feedback gets back to me, I'll get on colour more. 

Friends, Running Press found the caricature in this blog. Then, we've worked together.  So, who knows, through blog posts, publishers will approach you and you'll make a debut as an illustrator!

Go for it and enjoy blogging!! Thank you for warm cheers.
Happy Painting!!!
