How much would a course on drawing cost given by the top 100 international manga artists? How much would they charge to share their most highly valued techniques? This book brings together 100 manga artists and asks each one to offer 10 practical tips for the manga enthusiast on techniques, sources of inspiration, and the best way to build their portfolios. Detailed photographs, 1,000 in total, taken by the artists themselves serve to illustrate each of these 1,000 tips.
"In his introduction, Campos (1,000 Ideas for Graffiti and Street Art ) argues that manga ought to be considered a philosophy more than a genre, and the book’s format reflects this broad view. This inspirational reference presents short interviews with and sample artwork from 100 different artists from Japan and around the world who either work in manga formats themselves or have been strongly influenced by manga art. Campos includes an unusual variety of styles via the 1000 illustrations, which flow well in dynamic layouts. Because the interviews discuss creativity generally, this title can be helpful to many types of readers." - Library Journal
