Intercultural Communication published by Edinburgh Uni Press - cover

"Intercultural Communication" written by Prof Ingrid Piller is published by Edinburgh University Press. I'm very honoured and proud that the cover is my sketch of a crossing point in Parramatta where linguistically and culturally very diverse people are living. The book cover captures "snap shots" of many people's daily lives. I love people. In the exhibition and at else where, people love that work so much. 
Here's the book's information.

The content of the book is wonderful. 
1 Approaching intercultural communication 
2 The genealogy of intercultural communication 
3 Language and culture 
4 Nation and culture 
5 Intercultural communication in a multilingual world 
6 Intercultural communication in a transnational world 
7 Intercultural communication at work 
8 Intercultural communication for sale 
9 Intercultural romance 
10 Intercultural communication in education
11 Becoming an intercultural mediator

I know that Ingrid has been dedicating her life to do research that area. I admire her so much. I really look forward to the book and celebrate a book launch party with her students and colleagues. I also deeply thank for Edinburgh University Press team. They are so sweet and supportive for years. I hope I will visit Edinburgh to meet the team in person. 

Btw, the picture book project, "My dog Socks," is steadily ongoing at the stage of colour roughs. More than a half way through. I heartily appreciate the great support of Ford St publishing team, my mentors, Books Illustrated and Helen Chamberlin and your warm cheers!!! I'll make a good picture book.  
Best wishes, kind regards, Sadami 
Friends, Happy Painting!
