Marbles Kids Museum is seeking a quality, anime/manga-style artist in the area for an event planned for Saturday, February 16 that will focus on kids in Japan – what’s popular now and what traditions are still being kept alive.
Anime is such an important element of contemporary Japanese kids’ (and adults’) culture that they can’t see NOT including it in the programming.
They are interested in someone who may be adaptive to a kid-friendly anime/manga style, can do large-scale work (may use dry erase, paint, markers, etc. on a 4′ x 6′ or so surface), is good with people and is available on Saturday, February 16.

Nature – bonsais, zen gardens, volcano activity, ikebana – in the works
Origami – small and large-scale – confirmed
