Picture Books and Public Libraries

Do you often go to a library? In library activities, I love a story time best. 
Probably, this sketch is the most beautiful scene we hope to see in a daily life. 
Particularly, it's a bliss for me, a picture book illustrator to see reading books enhancing a family bond. Printed picture books can bring a shared joy in space. Great to see children and parents singing, gaming and listening to picture book stories. My joy to see children and parents enjoying my illustrated picture book, "Moon," too. 
In a digital era, printed picture books will survive or remain, I expect. I agree with this passionate Mem Fox's thoughts on books, comparing a television with a book, Flashing Screen or Turning Pages. Her presentation is very interesting and fascinating. When I attended it, kind Mem celebrated my work under the supervision of the mentors, Helen Chamberlin and Ann James. Furthermore, she signed it like below. Yes, Mem Fox wrote "Possam Magic" and Julie Vivas illustrated it. It has sold more than millions all over the world. 
I'm getting busy though, our publishing team is looking forward to a new picture book, "My dog Socks," in October by schedule. Other books I was involved, too, are on the way to be published. I hope my books will bring others love, hope and dream. Libraries will offer the place for people to access books all over the world. 

Friends, Happy Painting and Happy Reading!  

Fox, M (2017)



  1. Love the sketch + text .... just wonderful
    That's great news you are working on a new book

    1. Thank u, Jane! Another project is in an education area. Kind regards, Sadami

  2. Thanks for sharing your sketches from the library - it's great to see adults reading to kids and kids reading on their own, too :) I remember books being such a vacation/retreat/escape for me as a kid, sitting in a sycamore tree reading :)

    1. Oh, thank you, sweet Rhonda, for sharing your precious memory! I hope the printed picture book will survive in a digital era. Best wishes, Sadami

  3. Te has convertido en una gran especialista ilustrando libros y no te faltará trabajo. No para enriquecerte, pero sí, para ser feliz haciendo lo que te gusta.
    Un abrazo.

    1. Muchas gracias, Joshemari. Espero conseguir en la ilustración del libro ilustrado y los retratos más. Seguiré adelante.
      Saludos cordiales, Sadami

      Thank you very much, Joshemari. I hope I will get into picture book illustration and portraits more. I'll keep up.
      Kind regards, Sadami
