Let me show you some of my 4koma (about my life with cats).
Nao-p is my nick name my friend Mami Tachibana gave me. And I call her Mami-p. Of course it comes from Wedding Peach "Momo-p". No one calls me by the name except for her, but I love the 4 koma cartoon "Go Go Momo-pi (Gan-bare Momo-p)"(In the paperbacks) so I use it. :)
Oh, I'm a manga artist Nao Yazawa, and author of Wedding Peach, by the way. :)
These "comic strips" come from my 4-koma blog (in Japanese). You can see all of them in original here. If you have a request which 4koma will be next, tell me. :D

Manga Class day2
The first manga class (in English) at Manga School Nakano, day 2.
We are talking about the synopsis he made.
Actually we took 2 video clips, and 2nd was much better both the lecture and the English (in my point of view), but seems I failed to record that one.
In the second one, I explained how to make notes and storyboard with examples (from Moon and Blood 3) comparing with the book. And showed original drawings and answered his questions.
It would be much useful and interested in a general way for people who learn manga. Shame.... :(
Next, on Saturday afternoon, he is supposed to finish the storyboard. Good luck!
The school accept any participant during the period. Someone come who doesn't speak Japanese, the language will be switched. The schedule
The relic of the second video. Tsk, tsk!
