In this programme, participants will get to meet Eva, the comic artist of Eva, Kopi and Matcha and Eva Goes Solo, learn more about her and how she started drawing comics. Eva will also be talking about her inspiration behind her comics and her creative processes for drawing. She will be giving a hands-on demonstration of how to draw a Evacomics character and teens can try drawing them on their own too. Don’t miss this exciting chance to learn how to draw Eva’s characters! Materials will be provided.
 
A comic artist from Singapore, Evangeline Neo has been publishing her own comic series via web since 2007. She earned a scholarship for Japanese language study and Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at Waseda University in Tokyo in 2010, supported by Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Eva then returned to Singapore in 2013 to focus on working on her comics and brand, Evacomics. Published in 2014, her seminal work, Eva, Kopi and Matcha depicted and satirized cultural differences between Singapore and Japan. Her second comic book Eva Goes Solo, published in 2016, documented her experience adapting to new life in Japan.
 
Registration is required. Seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
This programme is suitable for teens aged 13 – 17 years old.
