Down by the riverside there is a quaint little teahouse run by our heroine, Geraldine, who's only desire is to spread her love of the golden beverage - But what's going to happen to her business when a new coffee house springs up right next door?! 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.
Writing Gerry's blocked nose dialogue is silly but super fun.
You know what else is fun? Halloween! And comic cons! And whoa they're all this month! I'll be at LICAF this coming weekend in Kendal, and at London Comic Con the following weekend, so if any of you are going to those, see you there!
In the meantime, how about a little game? I've currently got 872 readers who have subscribed/added Cafe Suada to their Inkblazers bookshelf. If you guys can help get that number up to 900 before Halloween, I will do a special Cafe Suada Halloween illustration! Think you guys can pull it off?
For as little as $1 you can access rewards on my Patreon, and your name will join the rest of my patrons below! Thanks to those who support Cafe Suada.
