Manga Jiman Mascot Competition Entry

Here is a design I drew for Manga Jiman’s Mascot competition. It didn’t even make it into the shortlist at then end so I guess they didn’t like mine so much… ^^’ I thought it was a cute design idea though.. 🙂 At least I tried. 🙂 When I looked up mascots in Japan they had some things in common. Firstly they often seemed quite simple designs, often cute, often animals. Manga Jiman is a UK competition to creat manga but because its the UK they ask people to draw it with English and readng left to right instead of right to left like japanese manga is. This mascot design is supposed to be like an advocate cheering on and celebrating the 2 cultures coming tigether, she encourages when british people are inspired by japanese manga and vice versa, encouraging the cultures to be inspired by each other and come together and celebrate the the artistic results achieved from being inspired by each others cultures and art. 🙂

*****Work in Progress*****

Oil painting I’ve been working on in the uni studios of my Teddy Bear, Bernard with a pink background as part of my Loneliness project. This one is not finished yet, needs a bit more work, but quite happy with it so far.
