Comiku Girls

The Comiku Girls, Akiko Meigetsu & Li Izumi, are celebrating their 10-year anniversary attending the convention circuit along
the eastern seaboard and beyond. Each has had a pencil (or brush) in their hand since they could hold one, & have been
telling stories since they could talk. At conventions, they are artists, cosplayers, & Japanese cultural panelists. In 2004, we
debuted our popular Japanese Tea Ceremony Panel, and have continued to create unique panel options in the decade since.

Akiko has a Ph.D. in Biology from Duke University. She has studied Brush Painting with Chinese master, Cong Yuan, and
watercolors with artist Luna Lee Ray. She has been painting in water media for more than a decade.

Li has a B.A. in East Asian Studies and a Master’s degree in Classical Japanese Language and Literature from University of
Massachusetts, Amherst. She spent 4 months in Akita, Japan living and going to school, where she studied, among other
things, how to wear a kimono, calligraphy, and tea ceremony.
