The winner of this year’s Bologna Children’s Book Fair was Satoe Tono for Lonely Pippo.  Unfortunately when I went to visit the exhibition at Itabashi Art Museum, it was placed in one of the outer rooms – very unusual considering it won.  Anyway, my favourites from this year’s illustrators are below.

I wonder if my personality could be defined in shapes!  The ones I like most are blocky, colourful, humorous and full of pattern.   The theme of my likes is the same everywhere – fashion, thinking and how I go about my life.
