What is Manga? Let’s draw your first manga character with INKO at HYPER JAPAN 2021!

About this event

Are you new or have a bit of experience in drawing Manga? Come and join INKO to get to know what manga is all about and why it’s so popular.

INKO is a Japanese Manga artist based in the UK. She was born in Kyoto, Japan. After graduating from Kyoto University of Art & Design, she moved to England and studied at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design.

In this free 1 hour workshop, INKO will talk about what is manga all about and a brief history of Manga. Then you will learn to draw your first manga character with step-by-step instruction!

This workshop will also give you a great opportunity to ask any questions or whatever you have been wondering about manga to a professional manga artist! You don’t need to have any drawing experience to join in, and if you’d rather just watch how a manga character is drawn, that’s just fine too.
