About

Welcome to DrawWithKoko.com!

My name is Koko, I am your manga anime drawing sensei!

 

Who am I?

It started when I was 7

I’m originally from Tokyo, Japan.

 

I started drawing when I was  7 – I remember watching Japanese Anime, placed a piece of paper directly on the TV screen so I can trace and practice drawing!  (that time the TV screen was CRT tv, so the surface was like glass 😉)

When I was on the 4th grade I remember joining a Manga Drawing Club at school in Tokyo. Once a week, we gathered in a classroom, brought own manga books and just drew drew drew.

 

It was SOOO fun!! After 30 years I still remember clearly! We joked, drew, talked, drew…. how I wish the time would last forever!

 

After +20 years of “lost” time…

Sad truth is that I stopped drawing when I grew older.  I worked as an illustrator, but still, not fully manga style.

but once I moved to Denmark…..

One random day, I took a piece of paper and started drawing again.  Then I realized, how much I missed drawing manga and I realized—-there are quiet a few people who LOVE drawing — just like YOU!

 

Now I found my passion – again

So in 2020, I decided to start a blog, youtube and other Social Media to start sharing my tutorials.

I’d love to share this drawing excitement with people who have passion of drawing, especially Manga Anime style.

This is your turn now!

This is your turn!!! I want you to have fun and practice drawing :). I am here to help you giving tips, inspiration and be a good company.

Let’s Draw Together!!

 

Personal life: I am married to a very supportive Danish husband and mother of a Viking-Ninja (how cool is that!?) boy. 🙂 Here is a picture of us in Akihabara, Tokyo when he was little.
