About Evangeline Neo

A comic artist from Singapore, Evangeline Neo has been publishing her own comic series via web since 2007 and enjoys a large following on her Facebook page, Evacomics. Her seminal work "Eva, Kopi and Matcha" (2014) depicts and satirises cultural differences between Singapore and Japan and has been translated into Bahasa Indonesia and Vietnamese. Her second book "Eva Goes Solo" (2016) documents her experiences adapting to life in Japan where she lived for some years.

She was a mentor for comics drawing on OKTO’s Knockout Carnival and has appeared in newspapers such as Zaobao, The Straits Times, The Sun, The New Straits Times, and The Star. Her work on cultural differences attracted an interview for Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal’s staff magazine. Eva was an invited speaker at conventions such as Singapore Toy Game Comics Convention, Comic Fiesta in Kuala Lumpur, and Popcon Asia in Jakarta.
