JFKL March 2016

Manga Workshop

Manga has been an inseparable facet of Malaysian childhood for decades. If you grew up dreaming of drawing characters from the likes of Doraemon, Dragon Ball and Naruto, this is the workshop to make that a reality. Participants can learn directly from Japanese professional cartoonist Manaru Tenkawa on how she developed her skills, expanded her imagination and received the opportunity to turn her passion into a career. Prior to her Kuala Lumpur trip, she will deliver similar workshops in Brunei on 18 and 19 March as part of a Japanese Language and Culture Week.

Instructor’s Bio
An art teacher at a vocational school in Osaka, Tenkawa has worked as a manga assistant at over 20 studios across her native country. Long fascinated by Islamic culture, she has published a serial comic about the daily life of a Muslim girl in a manga magazine and regularly hosts workshops in the Middle East.
