This week, I wrapped up work on The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Drawing Manga, Illustrated: Shojo, the second I’ve written in the how-to series for IDW and Alpha Books. (Third if you count The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Creating Dungeons & Dragons Characters, which is a CIG but not about manga.) This is due sometime in 2008.
No, I’m not a Japanese girl—the people at whom shojo is targeted—nor have I ever been. However, my co-author Tomoko Taniguchi once was, and she’s one heck of a manga-ka of top-shelf shojo to boot.
