"My Dog Socks" Launch, Great Fun!

Back to Sydney from WestWords residency in Pinerolo in Blue Mountains! Finally, I can post the photos, the "Book Launch of My Dog Socks" in Ford St Publishing (Paul Collins) in Melbourne. My sweet mentors, Books Illustrated (Ann James, Ann Haddon) and Helen Chamberlin joined it. Ann launched our book! We announced the winner of dog drawings. Thank you very much for sharing a wonderful time with us!! If you like, come cover to my facebook page, here to see more photos and people in our industry.

I deeply appreciated all the members's hard work in our publishing team : Author Robyn Osborne, Publisher Paul Collins, Meredith Costain, a book designer and all involved people and supporters! 
Book Launcher, Ann James. Books Illustrated based in Melbourne
kindly framed all my art work for the exhibition in this book launch. 
Author Robyn Osborne flew from Queensland. 
I was honoured to announce a winner of dog drawings.
It was a great fun and heart warming. Edi, you're the winner! 
A great runner-up! 
Now, a party time!! 
Paul Collins
Thank you for a strong support and warm encouragements for me to achieve this book. I'll keep up! In following blog posts, I'd write about my successful illustrator residency and Lisa Stewart's illustration workshop. Stay tuned! 
Friends, Happy painting! Yey! 



  1. What a great book cover, Sadami! Congratulations!

    1. Thank u, Chris! Everyone loves that front cover. Mentor Ann James said, "Aw, you're the winner!" But I know you draw animals very well! Best wishes, Sadami

  2. Hello Sadami, what a beautiful day that must have been for you and everyone who attended. Congratulations!

    1. Thank u very much, Carol! Yes, we had a fun and a joy, particularly, for the children who won the prizes. Enjoy your life, too. Best wishes, Sadami

  3. So wonderful to see you up there - and for the winners of the painting and the other gifts :) You look wonderful (love the dress!).

    1. Thank u, Rhonda! The children/winners and their family were so happy. The dress reminded me of "washes" and I love it. Cheers, Sadami

  4. Hi Sadami, I disappeared for while and now going through your blog, I see how much has happened. It is so exciting that My Dog Socks is now published! The cover looks great. I am so curious, I'll find a way to get one. I'm so happy for you looking at these photos! Hugs!

    1. Dear sweet Blaga, me, too, very happy to hear from you and visited your blog. You can get my signed picture books and limited edition prints from this site, "Books Illustrated", run by my mentors : Ann James and Ann Haddon.
      They are trustworthy. Soon, I'll post photos of WestWords new centre launch. Let's enjoy drawing and painting. Best wishes, ((Hugs)), Sadami
