Check it out: a blast from the past!
Ever wonder what to do with manga and/or anime kids? You know. The ones that love comics and cartoons made primarily in Japan?
If you’re teaching, you join in the fun.
The above image is from back in the spring when I tutored at a local high school. One of my boys had started working on his own manga script and asked me to draw a page. I wanted to encourage him (and maybe I felt gratified), but I did this, dang it. You can still see the marks from the scanner.
Then I went back to visit him in September and saw that his art skills had GROWN over the summer. His new rendition of the first page BLOWS this out of the water.
At the same time, this is really similar to a sequence in the first Scott Pilgrim book, which neither of us had read at that point. We were either hapless geniuses… or we were inadvertently confessing we could only talk to cute girls in our dreams.
