current news 2015~03~25

Hello everyone! So sorry for not updating in a while, been busy as usual but also have had bouts of a bad wrist. Recently I did some work for Toyota UK, designing and creating a short manga based around their 2014 Aygo. Head to my Tumblr blog post to read all about it!

I have a new deal in the Sweatdrop Studios store! BUNDLE PACK: BUY THE COMPLETE COLLECTION OF ALL 3 VOLUMES AYA TAKEO FOR UKGBP 20! Also, you can buy Once Upon a Time for only 5.00 from Sweatdrop's store!

I have been doing SO MUCH WORK on 'A Brush With Magic', a fantasy light novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2012 which I'm fully illustrating. It's so close to being finished! To read excerpts or view related artwork, head to my Tumblr 'brushmagic' tagged posts.

If you want help and advice on drawng Manga, one of my latest books Draw Manga: Complete Skills leads you through everything step-by-step, with 20 video tutorials on top! I also write free online tutorials for Letraset's blog on drawing Manga Characters.

FujoFujo! is now hosted on SmackJeeves and updates on Tuesdays when I have time. I also intend to get volume 2 done of Love Stuffing soon!

Remember that if you want to keep up-to-the-minute with anything I do, make sure to check out my Twitter, Tumblr or for the odd sketch and things, my deviantArt page! To catch up on past news, please read my Tumblr #fyredrakenetnews entries.
