Back Cover:

Manga is a real presence in our culture today. It has infiltrated television and game industries, offering fantastic graphics ranging from the popular Pokeman and Yugioh childrens' series to the successful Final Fantasy Saga and Street Fighter II video games. It is to the art world what punk was to the late 70s and early 80s - rebellious, on the edge, yet surviving and growing in a market crowded with talent. Manga, literally translated, means 'irresponsible pictures'. What may come as more of a surprise is that manga encompasses not only action and adventure, but also a whole range of subjects from cookery and tennis, to romance, science fiction and horror. One of the many reasons manga has grown in popularity in the West is that it breaks away from the normal genre of superheros and vigilantes. It is different, colorful and unpredictable

Unique, appealing and exciting - these distinctive, stylized characters will delight and inspire craftspeople and artists and all those interested in creating their own ideas and projects. A beautifully illustrated photocopiable collection of figures, animals and fantasy characters..

 

About the Designs

Osamu Tezuka has been one of the biggest influences on manga art over the years, and he was long regarded as the grandfather of anime (Japanese animations). Inspired by Walt Disney's film, Bambi, he developed the popular doe-eyed manga look that characterizes the figures and animals so well. Tezuka made his career as a manga artist during the 1950s and went on to create some of the most influential series of all time, including Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion. His wonderful style of anime and manga has influenced not only artists in Japan, but artists from all over the world.
