Students at Oathall Community College have been treated to the first ever UK visit from prolific American ‘Manga’ artist, illustrator and author Mark Crilley.  Mark’s visit was the result of a personal letter from Quinn Humphreys a student at the college who wrote asking if he would visit.  Quinn, a fan of Mark’s work , sent such an impressive letter that Mark agreed to come to Oathall!

Mark, who is currently You Tube’s most subscribed artist, started producing his distinctive style in the early nineties while in Japan teaching English.  He wrote and illustrated a comic book story for young readers and watched it grow into a popular comic-book series called “Akiko” that has won him a host of young fans around the world.

Mark is in school working with students in year 9 on a combined English and Art curriculum immersion day.
