Mark your calendars, anime and manga aficionados! You can now look forward to learning the ins and outs of Anime and Manga. Precious Pages Corporation will be organizing an event called “Manga Fest” this February 24, 2018 at the 4th floor of their building at #16 Sto. Domingo Ave., Q.C.
Manga Fest is an event for anime and manga sellers and collectors. Now is your chance to showcase, sell, and also to find what’s missing in your collections!
Manga Fest will also have two panel discussions. If you’re dreaming of becoming a comic writer or an illustrator, you can sign up for Black Ink 101. The lecture would be from 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM and would be led by Miss Melanie Esguerra, Managing Editor of Black Ink.
If you want to know the basic techniques of animation, you sure will learn a lot from Mr. Brian Barredo, CEO and Founder of SEACAT during the next session, Insight to Japanese Animation Production from 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM. Both speakers are enthusiasts and experts in the world of comics and animation.
The panel would carefully assess each respondent and only few will be chosen. Black Ink 101 has only 10 limited seats and Insight to Japanese Animation Production will only accommodate 30 persons.
So, what are you waiting for? Register now and learn with your co-Manga and Anime fans for only P20.00! Online registration is until February 20, 2018.

We are Black Ink, an imprint of Precious Pages Corporation which publishes comic books with various genres such as Romance, Adventure, Mystery, Paranormal, Slice of Life, et cetera. We are offering a free workshop to at least thirty (30) students who will buy our books during the book fair to be held at your respective school or university.
We can conduct the How To Draw, How To Write or How To Color Manga Workshop on grades 4 to 12 and college levels.

A twenty-minute talk about one topic from one manual. Followed by a thirty-minute drawing, writing or coloring activity. The rest of the time allotted will be spent on one-on-one checking of the said activity with the speaker or artist or a selection from the drawing they created. At the end of the workshop, we’ll give off prizes to the participants.
The following must be prepared by the school:

The workshop can be divided into sessions depending on the number of attendees. Schools with 51 and above attendees must divide the sessions in order for us to conduct the workshop/s productively. Our preferred time is between 1pm and 5pm.
For those who already know the basics of drawing in manga style, we created a four set of manuals about several topics in inking.
