Manga Workshop by Mr. Seiji Iwami

A Manga workshop was held on the 4th and 5th December 2010 at KOMTAR Dome. We invited Mr. Seiji Iwami, a veteran Manga artist appointed by the Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan as the “Japan Cultural Envoy” to promote Japanese Manga. He held a Manga workshop for the children who were participating in the Hope Church Malaysia National Convention children’s camp with the theme “Rickshaw Rally – Japan”.

Mr. Iwami invited the children to draw Manga together after demonstrating his Manga drawing skills on the stage. Most of the children could draw very well with Mr. Iwami’s guidance.

He later drew some of the children’s Manga portrait. There was a bee line of children queuing up to let Mr. Iwami draw a portrait of them.
