Interests

Conventions:


I'll be attending at least another three UK cons this year:

MCM London [May 26-28], London Super Comic Con [August 25-27] and MCM London [October 27-29]. Feel free to stop by and say hello if you'll be attending also :)

How-To Books:


* 'Digital Manga' is available for humans to buy on my website at www.benkrefta.com/shop/digital… : An in-depth tutorial book teaching virtually everything I know about Photoshop and colouring characters.

* 'The Artist's Guide to Drawing Manga'
 is also now available on my site www.benkrefta.com/shop/artists… : A beginners guide to manga and character creation. It's effectively an updated version of my older book 'The Art of Drawing Manga'.

With, 67,000 words of written content across both books, I'd like to think there's at least something in there that most artists could benefit from and enjoy :)
Both titles sold with free postage within the UK. I can also ship to Europe, US and worldwide also.

Art Related:


* My portfolio is now at www.benkrefta.com 

* I'm still tattooing part-time, having carried out over 300 tattoos or sessions to date.

* I've got a vague idea for a new book project, but no publisher on board thus far, so might just release pages as a series of Blog posts on my website?

* Commissions open, so if interested, send me a message :)

Mr Krefta I didn't know that you have an dA account! I have your book "The art of drawing manga". For someone who wants to learn how to draw anime/manga characters, it's very useful! I'm still learning and improving my art thanks to you!

I love your work by the way!

Mr. Krefta, I dunno if you like to support Net Neutrality..

If you're wondering why I'm asking this, I'm actually going to get serious because take a look at this: danlev.deviantart.com/journal/…

Thanks for the message but the issue has little impact in my country or any outside the US. From what I know there are pros and cons to net neutrality and im not sure I could confidently take a side even if it was relevant.

But I think it's good to fight for what you believe in so long as that beleif has good grounding in wisdom and reason :)

Well... Since Donald Trump is president, the government in USA he's running demanded NET Neutrality do be destroyed...
I like your statement there, I'll give you that!

I dunno if NET Neutrality is going to win or not..

Hope your understand, Mr. Krefta
