Manga Day at V&A

London's V&A Museum is having a Manga Day in the Hochhauser Auditorium of the Sackler Centre on Saturday 10 October for young artists aged 14–19 years. It's a free drop-in event. There will be Manga artists from Sweatdrop Manga Studios to give you advice on your own Manga drawings and to provide an insight into what it's like to be a comic artist. The day kicks off at 11 o'clock with an introduction to the history of Manga. At noon there's advice on storytelling, at 1.30pm careers in comics and at 2pm guidelines for creating your own Manga characters. Click the title link for details. I've illustrated this post with a detail from Barry Blair's Mowgli and Bagheera, a fine example of the Manga style.
