To all interested:

Kumon Publishing NA, one of the largest publishers of Pre-K and Gradeschool educational workbooks is starting to develop an educational manga line. This line will take existing classic literature and put it in a form that remedial students, and those who would otherwise be unwilling to read such titles, would be likely to pick up. At this time we are seeking artists to eventually produce the actual illustrations for these books.

What we would like to see:
A portfolio of your work, preferably in a printed format. Please send work that shows:
* Consistency of character design, different poses and outfits. Please try and show outfits you believe would fit in the timelines of some classic stories you have read (Treasure Island, Moby Dick, etc.)

* Detailed backgrounds

* Ability to fit within the framed format of a printed manga.

You may submit all work to the following address:
Adam Hennessy
Kumon Publishing North America
Glenpointe Centre East, 5th Fl.
300 Frank W. Burr Blvd.
Teaneck, NJ 07666

Please address all inquiries to: ahennessy@kumon.com because I will not be able to check this forum as often as I would like.

Thank you
