When Panagiotis Ftaras, publisher of Oksinia Publications, contacted me to illustrate this little book titled “The Gem Of Life”, I didn’t expect it to come so close to my heart. Christos Tatsiopoulos, a kid around 10, wrote a lovely story about two brothers who had had a lot of adventures to find the gem of life. During those adventures, they also discovered love, courage, and kindness. I found it so interesting that a meaningful story like this was written by a child that I said “yes” even if I knew I had many years to illustrate a book. I think the result is good and the book is published and out to conquer the world. Keep it in mind, I will let you know about the presentation when the time comes!
