"Cat + Sketchbook" and visit to Kyoto Manga museum

Translation of bottom caption: The Sparrow princess and friends stole the sketchbook as a prank. The cat and some crows are chasing after them.

I visited the Kyoto Manga Museum recently. There was an activity called Sketchtravel Workshop where participants each drew a picture involving a cat character looking for its sketchbook, and above is what I drew. This may end up in a book collecting the drawings... or something.

The participants at the table. I like their expressions.

Sign: Are Manga Artists Millionaires?
(Short answer from left of board: initial serialization in weekly/monthly magazines brings in little money for the artist. Printing of tankobon (books) and animation/merchandise does start to bring in money.)
