1) ANZAC Day 2) CBCA Notables Workshop 5 May

ANZAC day, 25th April is the remembrance day of soldiers and served people in Australia. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Originally it was to honour the ANZAC members who fought in Gallipoli against Turkey in WWI. 100 years have passed. 
Casualty : Over 80,000 Arab and Turkish soldiers were killed. Their wounded number was doubled Australian soldiers. Nearly 9,000 Australian soldiers lost their lives. About 140,000 allied troops were killed or wounded. Total : Estimated causality was nearly 400,000 on both sides. Thank you, my dear friend and anthropologist's research data from Australian Museum site. 
I love the picture book, "One Minute's Silence," that remembers the war from both sides and helps us to pass on the importance of peace to the present. I always cry, when I read that book.  
Btw, Come over, "CBCA 2018 Notables Workshop" in Pinerolo on 5th May in Blue Mountains. I will do presentation and learn from other great creators. 
Friends, Happy Painting and Happy Illustrating! 

    Margaret Hamilton shared a postBooks and bubbles! What else do we need? Come on 5May to celebrate these amazing creators and their books.
