This was our second and last day at the Children’s Book Fair, and it was great. We were more tired than the day before but much more focused on what to do and what to look for. We met a good number of editors and art director, proposing our all-in-one pack, reaching good results. Now we have a lot of contacts to spoil and some more experience. Now we are definitely waiting for the fish to eat the bait…
……but every rose hat its thorns. We don’t want to polemize on this blog let’s just say that some people don’t simply know the basic rules of the correct behaviour when it comes to use the “Wall of cry” in Bologna. We woke up at 6:30 AM to hang our poster among the first on the Wall in the position that we thought best, without disturbing the others. If someone happens to arrive later in the day or the day after, or in a moment when the Wall is entirely occupied, it is unfair to just attach their poster ON someone else’s…we are “all in the same boat” and it is not prevarication that will make you a better illustrator, and surely not a better professional. Next time maybe you should wake up earlier and come at the fair’s opening hour.
Today was a good fishing day! We managed to hang two of our posters to the “Muro del pianto”, and then to leave our material in the hands of many of the editors and expositors, both italian and foerign, that we met. Our all-in-one pack idea seems to be fairly working and to be appreciated. We baited the hook, will the fish snap it?
STAY TUNED FOR TOMORROW!!!
We are in Bologna, ready for our participation, tomorrow, at the BCBF (Bologna Children’s Book Fair). Excitement is in the air, and ideas are on the table…STAY TUNED!!!
