Anime and Manga Drawing

We started the class off with a dozen visitors from Taiwan followed by neighborhood kids who sat on the floor squeezing as many interested students as the room would hold. I grew up “learning to draw comics the marvel way” and I still highly recommend the book How to Draw Comics The Marvel Way. Armed with a stack of Manga books, graphic novels and “how to Draw Manga” books, I demonstrated the principles of drawing a figure and character design with a pencil followed by a variety of marker points and finally pen and ink. This was definately a popular class and the results amazing, a perfect fit for any library program!
