Back when I lived in NYC I had the pleasure of meeting Rising Stars of Manga vol. 2 winner Tania del Rio at MoCCA Fest.
Tania’s an awesome manga/comic artist who recently relocated to Cali.
She worked on Archie comics’ Sabrina the Teenage Witch and also published a book called Manga Ka America highlighting American manga artists that all of you should buy right now. The art is amazing and showcases that you don’t have to be from Japan to produce quality manga.
Every Monday Tania writes/illustrates a fantastically crude (as in badly drawn) web comic called My Poorly Drawn Life where she highlights interesting things going on in her life and the life of her family. It’s always entertaining and just goes to show that you don’t have to make everything Disney quality in order to entertain people.
