You can recongise Ġorġ Mallia miles away from his smile. They say he’s always smiling. But sometimes he does other things too, like writing and illustrating books for children, or like heading the Media and Communications department at the University of Malta, or like reading a comic or two. He lives in Malta and Sweden. He’s in seventh heaven when he’s drawing or researching and believes that there’s nothing better than peace and quiet … and fresh air.
