Back in the UK

I’ve had a lot of contacts with Scotland recently, which is nice when I’m so far away.

A Scotsman talks…

Just to extend on what I noted already regarding our recent lecture talk in Glasgow, me, Chie and Paul Gravett, involving pages from THE STORY OF LEE: I enjoyed that talk – it was odd to have my VOICE only appear back in my home country, while my BODY remained in Japan! But why not… […]

Talk at Glasgow

I came back from Glasgow, where I attended Glasgow Film Festival and talked about manga in general and my work, of course including the Story of Lee,  with Paul Gravett and Sean (via Skype!), last night.

Sean, back from the US and A.

I was just in the USA again, at a convention held in Minneapolis College of Art and Design – a good little academic style con, with cosplay fun thrown in. I made a talk about ‘Ax and Gekiga: maturer style manga’, to a full house and a good reception – thank you all. and thanks […]
