    After working as an assistant and then becoming a manga artist and freelance illustrator, Kaneda Kobo began to produce illustrations for drawing manuals and advertisements, adapting the drawing style to the requirements of each job.


    Tsubura Kadomaru has always loved drawing and sketching, and in middle and high school was the head of the school's art club. She protected the club, that had become a manga study group and Gundam get-together, and its members, raising creators who now work in the game and anime industry. She studied oil painting in the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Tokyo University of the Arts at a time when film studies and contemporary art were thriving. She has authored, edited, and conceived dozens of drawing manuals.
