“Dear JAPAN: Messages of hope from picture book artists worldwide”

How  exciting!Today I heard from Art Ehon again:

"Thanks to your warmest cooperation, we have received illustrations with messages from 135 illustrators of 24 nationalities. Such overwhelming response was just beyond our imagination.

The exhibition

My piece "Prayers for Japan"
We delighted to inform you that sixty-six “Dear JAPAN”illustrations with messages including yours have been displayed at “World Picture Books Exhibition: Bologna Children's Book Fair in Itabashi” held in Itabashi Ward in Tokyo, a sister city of Bologna from 20th to 28th August, 2011.
Following the success of the Itabashi exhibition, these works are now scheduled to be on display at Tamagawa Children’s Library in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture (situated in northwestern Japan) from mid-September to early October this year.
For your reference, I am herewith attaching some photos at Itabashi exhibition.

My artwork made into a postcard, number 2

Please be informed that at Itabashi exhibition, thirteen postcards including yours have been on sale.

On the back of the postcard, our project name, “Dear JAPAN: Messages of hope from picture book artists worldwide”, your name, your country name and your message are printed in Japanese.

In addition, your name is printed in English as well.

We ensure that the proceeds of JPY 38100 raised from this postcard sales are donated to Japanese Red Cross Society."
I'm  sooo honoured to be a part of this!
