The start of 2017 has seen us start work on a new manga, our first in collaboration with another organisation. This is a totally new venture for us, and we’re excited to take on the challenge!
It’s that time of the year when we look back at the highlights of the past 12 months. For us at mayamada, the GamePad Christmas event was the top of that list. A big thanks goes to the team who supported us and everyone came down to made it an amazing day! Don’t worry if you missed out, check out our recap and join us again in spring 2017.
This year our #BeCreative campaign continued with a really fun photoshoot with creative people from all walks of life. But it’s probably not going to surprise anyone who follows mayamada that cosplayers are one of our favourite groups to speak too!
Back in 2015, we released issue 1 of our story about a young Rabbit named Blake and his big ambitions of becoming a success in the big city known as The Jungle. A year on and we’re almost ready for the launch of the complete volume!
Summer’s over here in Britain and we’re looking back at a really busy few months exhibiting at comic conventions across the UK and America, met some cool new people and learned a few lessons too.
May is the start of a mayamada comic convention tour where we’ll be travelling across the UK and in the US too!
Check out our tour dates below and book your tickets to see us at a convention near you.
We had a great success with our last Kickstarter for the complete edition Samurai Chef and we’re now excited to announce the launch of our new crowdfunding campaign on Patreon!
After a break from comic conventions over December and January, we had two in February. Just like buses, wait for ages and two come along almost at once!
It’s great for us though. We got to showcase our latest manga Hot Lunch at the London Anime & Gaming Con as well as hold two talks on stage on each day of the event. Public speaking can be nerve-wracking, but when we get to talk about the mayamada universe, creating stories and comics we jump at the chance.
After LAGC, we exhibited at the London Super Comic Con for the first time and meet a whole host of great artists, old friends, and fantastic cosplayers…
Last year saw the launch of our #BeCreative campaign and with the help of 24 great artists, manage to create a one of a kind collection of artwork that answered the question: what does creativity mean to you?
We’re keeping our campaign going in 2016, starting with another installment of our creative blog feature. This time around we’re speaking to some of the same illustrators who contributed to our launch and finding out about their creative process.
Take a look at their interviews to find out what creativity means to these illustrators and just what goes into producing their amazing work.
