Manga University

Manga UniversityAlright all you creative-types! If you’re interested in learning to draw manga, or maybe just brushing up on your skills, you’ve got the perfect opportunity with Manga University. You can enroll in a class ($$) or enjoy free online tutorials that show you how to draw things like anime faces, clothing or specific characters. They even sell cool stuff like special pens and paper. Personally, I like the free lessons 🙂

Don’t bother buying the books — we’ve got lots of manga drawing books in the library!





Come see “Amelia Rules!” cartoonist Jimmy Gownley

Amelia RulesAmelia Rules! cartoonist and author Jimmy Gownley will be at the Hyattsville Branch on Sunday, October 14 at 1:30 pm. In celebration of Teen Read Week, Mr. Gownley will be presenting a workshop on turning your real-life experiences into a comic book.

For those of you who are interested in or like to draw, this is a great program for you! It’s not always easy coming up with ideas for what to draw, but having someone show you that your own life can actually be interesting and funny, is a good place to start 🙂
