Manga are Japanese comic books or graphic novels, where art and storytelling combine. Traditionally read from right to left, yes the reverse of English books. Manga is a visual language and a recognisable art form, adapted to and from anime, movies, and video games with huge followings.
This summer an exhibition will bring to life the art of manga, offering an introduction to the art; historically, how it emerged in Japan, and its development to becoming a worldwide cultural phenomenon.
Members are free or you can book tickets online.
If you're already a manga fan, you may know that ARTdiscount stock fantastic pens to try out your own Japanese style artwork. Such as Faber-Castell artist fibre tip and brush pens with acid-free, water resistant archival ink that won't bleed through paper, perfect for detailed comic pages.
Try your hand using Copic Ciao Markers, available in 180 colours, these dual tipped pens come with a broad and brush end, ideal for layering colours. These are even made in Japan, where they're crazy popular!
