For those of you who love manga and/or aspire to be manga artists, Ustream.tv is a surprisingly good source for live channels of manga and doujinshi artists drawing at their desktops.
Unfortunately, you kind of have to search for them to find them, as they often will change channels that they’re broadcasting on. I think I’ve seen “yoshikadu” change channels 3 or 4 times in the past 2 years in fact. You could do a very general keyword search for “Japan” and sift through those. Needless to say the artists generally don’t tag their channels consistently, so it takes some time to find them. But it’s worth it to see the creation of such magnificent artwork.
Here are some channels I follow:
Again, these links are subject to change. Check them out when you get a chance. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to watch them live on the air.
