Happy Chinese New Year of the Wood Goat/Sheep!

My latest publications are two HUGE books that cover everything you need to know about making Manga artwork and comics. 101 Top Tips From Professional Manga Artists has great advice to help you raise your game and get inspired, and Draw Manga: Complete Skills leads you through everything step-by-step, with 20 video tutorials on top!

FujoFujo! is starting up again, now hosted on SmackJeeves so if you have an account there, please add me to your lists! In the meantime, you cna check out my free online tutorials for Letraset's blog on drawing Manga Characters. 'A Brush With Magic' is a fantasy light novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2012 which I'm fully illustrating, hope to get it out soon. To read excerpts or view related artwork, head to my Tumblr 'brushmagic' tagged posts. I also intend to get volume 2 done of Love Stuffing soon!
