Fairy Tales Can Come True, They Can Happen to You

BY ANGELO MOKUTAN
@ VOL 126 ON JUN 24, 2015

"If you want to develop your imagination and go beyond your limits, read fairly tales!"

Tokyo-based, Brazilian artist Angelo Mokutan talks about the influence of a having a mother in oriental medicine, a sculptor for a father, and the creative seed he inherited from them taking root and inspiring a move to Japan to follow a dream. After studying fine art, and unsure of his prospects he found himself working a for an IT term. But his passion was calling and he finally abandoned the stability of his job to follow his true dream to become a successful manga artist.

He believes manga can develop our imagination and help us go past the limits of our rational minds. 

Lastly, offering a new twist on an old classic, Mokutan gives Little Red Riding Hood an urban update, her grandmother living in Tokyo, and big bad wolves all around. If you send a him a suggestion on what she brings to grandmother's house, he'll illustrate it in a manga and credit you as co-author! Lets send him some ideas so we can ALL be manga artists!
