I always feel that Books Illustrated is really the motor engine of Australian picture book industry. In addition, anyone in Australian picture book industry gives me positive feedback on the image of Books Illustrated such as, "Gorgeous!" "Ah, adorable,"Ahhhh Sadami, what a lovely way to start my day!" "Very good pic!" etc, etc. Yes, Boooks Illustrated is very much loved in our industry. I'm fortunate to have such a wonderful mentor in my career.
Friends, enjoy Bologna Book Fair! Also, Happy Painting!
