EVENT : Manga Workshop
VENUE : Kriyetic Comics & Graphics Studio, Purbalok, EM Bypass, Kolkata, West Bengal.
DATE: 25th and 26th February 2012.

Back in March 2010, Kriyetic comics & Graphics studio Link in collaboration with Comics India, Hoshobunkai, The consulate of Japan in Kolkata and NHK T.V  hosted the first ever five day long Manga and origami workshop in the heart of Kolkata. Manga and comics lovers across town swarmed in numbers to be a part of the event and meet a live mangaka for the first time and feast on all the mangas and posters on display. The workshop had ended with a live video conference with Chigusa Takaku, actress of  "The Japanese wife" by Aparna Sen, Speech and distribution of certificates.


February 2012 saw the return of internationally acclaimed mangaka Yukichi Yamamatsu in his workshop on "How to Draw Manga" . Though a smaller version of the original workshop, it was by no means any less of an event. Fifteen participants turned up to be a part of a rare opportunity. With KAC members volunteering for the event, this blog is a small tribute to the event and to all those people who made it happen. :)

Below are a few pictures from the event, enjoy!!
