    Workshop/Course, Sun 2 Nov 2014


    In this workshop, we will explore the history of manga and discuss what we think makes manga so special. Then we will all have a go at drawing our own manga style illustration. Using this and other examples, we will develop our technique and style to create our very own manga character.

    About Chie

    Chie Kutsuwada was born and brought up in Japan. After graduating Royal College of Art, London, she moved to Brighton, to work as a professional manga artist.

    She creates stories as well as draws all the illustration by herself. Her works include King of a Miniature Garden and Moonlight. Moonlight was shortlisted in the Manga Jiman competition, organised by UK Japan Embassy.

    Chie has also worked with storywriters, such as As You Like It (2008 SelfMadeHero, London) by Shakespeare and The Book of Five Rings by Musashi Miyamoto (adopted by Sean Michael Wilson, 2012 Shambhala, Boston & London).

    Her books are available at the most of English speaking countries and Japan. Also some of them are translated in Turkey, France and Spain.

    Besides creating manga comics, she also attends many manga-related events in and out of UK and runs manga workshops at schools, libraries, and museums, such as British Libraries and Victoria and Albert Museum.
