And what is the meaning of Cafe Suada? Find out in this story of tea, coffee and romance!
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hullo there! I’m Jade, a Lincoln based illustrator and comic artist. I really like tea, dogs and old books.
I graduated from the University of Lincoln in 2011 with a first class honours degree in Illustration, and I started self-publishing my teastained comic series Cafe Suada shortly after that. My style is a fusion of British roots with Japanese influences, and combines digital and traditional techniques. In 2013 I was nominated for Best Emerging Talent in the British Comic Awards, and in 2014 I won the Myriad Editions First Graphic Novel competition with an extract from my graphic novel For the Love of God, Marie!, published July 2016.
I’m also a keen exhibitor, workshop leader and charicaturist and I can often be found at comic events such as Comic Con, Thoughtbubble, Comiket and others.
Oh my, it feels awfully tense in here. What's up with these guys?
I took a little longer finishing this page than usual, listening to the 25th anniversary Les Miserables performance while I inked was probably not the best idea. Tears all over the pen tablet by the finale!
Hmmm, can't put my finger on why but I rather imagined Oolong using ze most outrageous of french accents when he came out with that last comment :) Got me thinking: Does he have any particular accent? Do any of the others? Do tell ^^
@Mimi-Evelyn: He is not French, but now I find myself reading that panel with a hilarious accent too XD I do know their nationalities, but instead of listing them I was thinking of maybe doing an "actor" post - like a sort of movie cast version of the characters :D Could be fun.
@3o-s-knight: SO THE DRAMA. All will be revealed eventually ;D As for the individuality, I can't really help it, these guys are alive in my head so that's how they appear on the page! Hehehe. Just like your wonderful characters.
