One news item which really impressed readers this year was of John Kyrle High School year 7 pupil George, and his drawing of Dragon Ball Z character Vegeta.
He created the depiction of Vegeta in his “God of Destruction” form; excited to show off his work—which he created in his free time—he hopes to draw anime professionally after graduation but is worried about how difficult it will be to break into Japanese and South Korean markets.
George’s drawing proved to be one of our most popular 2022 stories, with countless people applauding his work on social media. Since the story was published, the Gazette has kindly been sent more pictures of the artist’s work, pictured right.
“Absolutely awesome. I’m in South Korea and went to John Kyrle. Good luck to the lad. Just push and work hard,” posted one commenter, Teddy Devitt.
