The Internet has been a double-edged sword for the creative industries, including comics. In the past two decades, governing bodies and copyright owners have been grappling to keep up with the digital proliferation, which makes it easier to share and transfer assets. On one side, it has popularised comics beyond print, expanding networks and creating advertising and purchasing platforms. On the other, intellectual property rights have been infringed, and profit margins affected. Comic creators Meguru Hinamoto, Colin Goh and Jerry Teo will talk about the pros and cons of digitalisation on their works.
She made her debut as an artist of girls’ manga in 2003. Her works can be found as web and mobile manga now, which include girls’ manga for school children, adult manga for female readers, and manga focusing on teenage romance. Meguru is also talented in turning novels written by other authors into manga.Meguru Hinomoto is featured in the following SWF event(s):
Jerry Teo is the author and artist of the independently published comic series, Rex Regrets. He is also a freelance technical illustrator working with smaller international defence and engineering industries as well as advertising agencies.
