The exhibition was really very interesting and very colourful....It was especially interesting as it had photo's of people wearing clothes inspired by Manga and also had a selection of wigs and clothes at the exhibition that could be tried on really giving people a hands on experience of Manga fashion.
I was also particularly interested in the comic strips they had displayed, as for my current professional project I am planning to attempt to include a comic strip I have had the inspiration that I could attempt a Manga Comic strip as its modern yet fun which I really like. They had several books at the exhibition also which showed how to illustrate a manga cartoon which I attempted which is shown below.
The Most common Manga that you might remember is Pokemon which was a huge comic illustration in the 1990's! What I found amazing is that Manga is now the fastest growing segment in the publishing industry with sales.
After much persuasion I managed to get David to put on a mask and get into the spirit and he certainly had a good pose :)
I also recorded the exhibition to share (below), I hope its not too wobbly for you! :)
