Draw your dreams! The illustrator, Maki Ashiya(#芦屋マキ), and manga artist, Emi Ishikawa(#いしかわえみ), is here to give words of encouragement to the applicants for the Grand Prix! Both of them are graduates of our school and are active artists even after graduation. Take a look at their message along with the works of the high school students who won the Grand Prix last year.

<Maki Ashiya>
I believe that illustrations have the power to transcend the barriers of the world. Please use that power to create your work! I’m looking forward to seeing it.

<Emi Ishikawa>
I think it’s important to have the desire to draw. Please cherish that feeling and do your best!

It’s a waste to draw illustrations and manga and leave them as they are. Why don’t you test your skills in this Grand Prix?
