Learn to Draw Manga with Ivy

Creative Team | May 8, 2017

Hi, I'm Ivy. I'm an art student at the iii Academy, where I'm learning to draw manga. I'm featured in the iii Academy book for beginner manga artists. Let me tell you more about myself.


First things first, I'm just a kid, but I love to draw. I'm 12 year old, a 6th grader. I go to the Imagination International Academy of Arts. It's a magical place to learn how to draw manga, which I'm already very good at. I'm a top student. The headmaster of the school, Ken, is my grandfather.  


The craziest thing happened when I first arrived at iii Academy. I discovered that I have a cousin, Ian! He always needs a little extra help with his drawing skills, but hey, not everyone can be super talented. Right?

My artistic abilities are improving too. Some say I say more through my pen and pencil than I do out loud. Maybe I'm sort of shy, but that's not going to stop me from becoming a professional manga artist. I'm following the path of my grandfather, my inspiration in life. Who knows? Maybe one day I'll become a school headmaster.
