are you a profisional in the area? i saw some comics pages your , of the gosthbuster... i ma starting try take this kind of work seriosily.. a finishad some days ago a history with 16 pages... gongratulatiosns for all of your works man .. realy very good and inspirator....
maybe a litle sad no? .. hehehehe ... i hope you like of your regular job as much as you liked of comics or that you dont care a lot to comics .. because is not good dont do what we dont like .. i ma studyng to be a art teacher but my dream is become a comics artist ..
My mistake was to go straight into Comics without doing Teacher training...I have taught classes in College and Youth Work but I do not have the qualification for School - teaching.Good luck with both your career choices. Have you heard of the American Comic strip artist - Don Newton? He died in 1984 I think, but he was an Art Teacher but drew his comics during Free periods and at lunch - time!? He drew the Phantom for Charlton comics and Batman for Dc Comics. A brilliant artist.
maybe is not a mistake man .. mistake i think is when we look back , see what was done wrong and in a new oportunit do everityin wrong again. you stoped with comics or you are doing as Don Newton, work in comics and other thing together?
i never heard about hin. i will take a look in some images in the internet.

1 - what is your earliest memory of a magazine or designer with some traits or characteristics of manga in the United States comics?
2 - when this "invasion" became apparent and what artists do this?
3 - which proportions it took and how this relationship now? more artists have brought these caracteristics to their work or it is already over?
thank you very much man .. and i realy hope you dont angry or something with me and i realy hope you answer me .. hehe .. see you ..
Sorry - I have no interest or knowledge to interest you.If you are serious and not a spammer, which I think you might well be, then get a friend to translate for you because you probably wont get many responses from the artists you mentioned if they struggle to understand your questions.
