I’m pleased to report that Andy and I are finalists this year in the Japanese embassy’s Manga Jiman competition. They will be announcing the order of winners at the party in February. I am also excited to see the names of Gwen Kortsen and Angela Wraight on the list – two awesome manga creators who do not get enough recognition, and certainly not as much as they deserve! Kudos also to John Blake and Jade Sarson too. I’m afraid I’m not all that familiar with the other finalists, so roll on February when I will get to see their work on the wall.

Here is the list, as borrowed from the Japanese Embassy website:

Angela Wraight/Gwen Kortsen – ‘Yoshitoki’s Making Waves’
Aya Kawamura – ‘Rain’
Carlos Felix – ‘Sea’
Clio Millett – ‘Beyond Raging Waves’
Jade Sarson -‘PP – Wave Space Time’
John Blake – ‘A Mean Artopologist’
Katja Hammond – ‘To Sail A Moon’
Karen Rubins/Andrew Smith – ‘It Came From the Sea’
Kharis Brown – ‘The Wave of Fate’
Lingxi Huang – ‘Paintings of Life’
Lorenzo Fruzza – ‘Wave FM’
Rachel Dunn – ‘I Wish’
Tania Thomas – ‘Reach’
