Sweatdrop Studios (UK-based manga studio) featured in Artists & Illustrators Magazine
Sonia Leong writes: UK-based anime/manga style comics highly profiled in mainstream art magazine:

For those interested in the attractive and dynamic art style of cartooning inspired by the Japanese Anime and Manga scene, you do not want to miss picking up the latest issue of Artists & Illustrators Magazine (on sale 4th March), the UK's best-selling magazine for practising artists.

Manga style is heavily featured, appearing as a cover-mount, two full-colour mini comics (eight pages each) and a "Make your own manga" tutorial, including sketching, inking and using colour markers to produce authentic looking illustrations. All of these features were provided by Sweatdrop Studios, a collaborative of UK artists working to produce original comics and graphics in this unique art style.

Sweatdrop Studios will also be offering talks, demonstrations, seminars and practical workshops at the Artists & Illustrators Exhibition (21st-24th July 2005). Look out for more information and features from the group in upcoming issues of the magazine.

There were 2956 total votes.

Obviously Manga wins :) This was mainly a test of our poll system. The next poll should be a bit more interesting! Keep your eyes peeled as we'll be adding a new one soon.

Site Update, Series Info Section Completed
We had a minor site update today. Firstly, the series section has been upgraded, and we will start populating it with new series. If you would like to help, you can goto the "My Releases" section after registering for an account and hitting the "Add Series" button. I have added a sample series "Open Sesame" as an example of how it works. Anyone who has an account can contribute to a series by clicking the "Edit" button for the specific item they wish to update. Several other minor things have been upgraded as well. I hope everything works, but if it doesn't, please add a comment to this news entry.

Update: I changed the reviews section around a bit. It looks a little nicer now. Check it out here. More things to come.

Thanks, BU-Staff
