Anime, a style of Japanese animation, is wildly popular everywhere. It’s no wonder some contemporary Native artists draw from anime styles and vibes for their own works.
Today on Native America Calling, Andi Murphy talks with Indigenous graphic artist and designer Ovila Mailhot (Stó:lō and Nlaka’pamux Nations), comic book artist Kayla Shaggy (Diné/Anishinaabe) from Triple Jeopardy Publications, and Dimi Macheras (Ahtna-Athabascan), artist, illustrator, and graphic novelist with 80% Studios, about their love for anime and manga and how they implement the style in their own storytelling.
