Ġorġ Mallia

Author, cartoonist and communications academic

I've been writing and illustrating children's books from day one. The reason is very simple. It's not because it's easy to write and draw for children, but it's because in that genre, the sky's the limit. The sky and the creator's imagination. I'm very happy that many of my books are read quite widely. Perhaps it's the love that I've poured into them that makes them so endearing to kids. At least, I hope so. Here the variety is huge... from full colour images to basic black and white illustrations, sometimes toned by zip-a-tone transfers (in days before computers). Some drawn and coloured by hand. Others on digital tablets with computer colouring. But there is no doubt that in each I've poured passion, that I hope comes across.
