About Evangeline Neo

A comic artist from Singapore, Evangeline Neo has been publishing her own comic series via web since 2007. Eva was awarded an MDA scholarship in 2003 and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. She subsequently earned a scholarship for Japanese language study and Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at Waseda University in Tokyo in 2010 supported by Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Japan). Eva returned to Singapore in 2013 to focus on working on her comics and brand "Evacomics".

Her seminal work, "Eva, Kopi and Matcha" was published in 2014 depicting and satirizing cultural differences between Singapore and Japan. Her second comic book "Eva Goes Solo" was published in 2016, documenting her experience adapting to new life in Japan. Publishers from Indonesia and Vietnam had also translated her first book into their local languages.

Eva has garnered significant media attention and appeared on local newspapers: Zaobao and The Straits Times, Channel 8 evening news, as well as Malaysian newspapers: The Sun, New Straits Times and The Star. She was also featured as a mentor to teach comic drawing on “Knockout Carnival”, a local TV program on OKTO channel. Her work about the cultural differences also attracted an interview for Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal’s staff magazine. Due to her popularity online, she was an invited panel speaker for various conventions at home and overseas such as Singapore Toy Game Comics Convention (STGCC), Comic Fiesta in Kuala Lumpur, and Popcon Asia in Jakarta.

With Evacomics going viral - over 100,000 Facebook page ‘likes’ and her popular book selling well at all local major bookstores, she continues to have big and colourful dreams.

She is currently based in Singapore.
