We invited Japanese sakuga director, Iruka Umeda as a special guest to critique illustrations and give career advice to our attendees at our booth in the Annex. Furthermore, with the cooperation of both KawaiiSensei and Clip Studio Paint, we were able to give away exclusive deals and amazing rewards. With such an incredible collaboration and various opportunities, we were able to create a wonderful experience out of this event.
