The French website Manga News posted an interview with Oresama Teacher creator Izumi Tsubaki on Tuesday, and the interview includes a time-lapse video of Tsubaki drawing Oresama Teacher's heroine Mafuyu.
Itsubaki notes that she was studying to become a teacher, but eventually decided to follow her sister, who was already working as a manga creator. After Itsubaki won third place in a contest, an editor approached her, and she has been working as a manga creator ever since. Her inspirations include her own sister and Yoshihiro Togashi (Hunter x Hunter), since Togashi's Yu Yu Hakusho series was the first manga she bought on her own.
Viz Media is publishing the sixth volume of Oresama Teacher in North America this month.
