Full Story
Press release as follows:

It's been a very busy year for Sweatdrop with many new releases, new members and some exciting projects underway –
One of which we can now officially announce!
Sweatdrop are proud to announce their involvement in the following event:

Artists & Illustrators Exhibition 2005.
July 21st - 24th

For those who don't know of the exhibition, this is a large event which last year attracted over 14,000 visitors to London's Business Design Centre.
As you can see, it's an event spread over four days and will be wall to wall with artists, manufacturers, publishers and creativity! The exhibitors vary broadly across a whole range of genres and styles, and the event is always keen to introduce new and innovative art styles to the exhibition.

So where does Sweatdrop come in?

This is a very exciting time for Anime and Manga themed art in the UK, with its influence being felt now more than ever in the mainstream art world. More and more people want to know about this wonderful medium and how they can create the style. Sweatdrop has been approached to exhibit at the event, but also to provide workshops, seminars and larger ‘conventions'; The latter being 4 x 90 minute presentations covering aspects of Manga-styled art and its creation.

The following Manga-themed presentations will be on offer over the 4 days:

Day 1 – Manga – A history and overview of the Japanese Art form
Day 2 – Manga – Creating the style #1
Day 3 – Manga – Creating the style #2
Day 4 – Manga – Sequential Art

Kids workshop – hands-on workshop for younger artists
Drawing a character – basic and hands-on
1 Page comic-drawing session

Seminar – Printing
Inking – the power to change a piece

Sweatdrop are immensely proud to have been asked to represent the UK manga community at this event and we really hope that many of you will join us there! The organisers are very keen to draw in the new generation of artists in the UK and this is our chance as a community to show the outside world just how varied, powerful and emotive an art style this is. The more manufacturers realise how popular the medium is in the UK, the more they will cater for it! There are so many talented manga artists in the UK now, so if you're one of them or an enthusiast of the style, why not come along? Maybe pick up some high quality art materials direct from the manufacturers or take part in the workshops - Or maybe just wander around the event and absorb the sheer variety of artists and illustrators in the UK.
Either way, we'd love to see you there!

Ticket prices are estimated to be:
11 on door
9.50 pre-booking online
We'll offer up more detailed information as soon as we know it!
