Taipei, Aug. 9 (CNA) Taiwanese illustrator Enzo, who just released his first book of short graphic stories, has been invited to the International Literature Festival that will take place in Berlin Sept. 4-15.

Enzo, whose graphic books have been translated into Korean, Thai, German and simplified Chinese, will share the experiences of his career of over a decade at the Berlin fair, according to his publisher.

Meanwhile, the illustrator has seen his latest book titled "The Story of Dream" -- the first book of short stories of his career -- making it onto the list of bestsellers in the literature category of local bookseller KingStone two days after its release in August, his publisher said.

Enzo likes to observe things from his daily life and most of his works are based on his life. "The Story of Dream" is composed of seven short stories depicting fragments of his life.

He insists on painting with brushes, without the help of technology, although he said he sometimes feels very lonely when insisting on doing something alone.
