My Manga Sketchbook
“I like drawing. I like to draw manga characters. They’re sort of like the Japanese animated style drawings. I really like creating character as well. My friend and I talk a lot about that; we create our own characters, and she’s thinking of writing her own story with our characters. So that’s a big hobby of mine. I work in my room, at my desk. When I go out I think about drawing, and I write things down because new ideas just come to me randomly. And I talk about it with my friend and we share ideas together.
I’m currently reading this manga series called Fairytale. Oh, it’s wonderful! You really get a sense of family from the characters. They are so tight knit and whenever I read it I just feel so comfortable and happy. I feel like I’m part of the family. How they are is how I wish school life was like—everyone supporting each other constantly!”
