Eva, Kopi and Matcha 2.0

Eva, Kopi and Matcha 2.0

Evangeline Neo’s gallery of cultural differences continues with this follow-up to Eva, Kopi and Matcha. During her studies abroad in the United States and Japan, Eva’s early brushes with how things are in those countries left such an impression on her that she eventually recorded them in webcomics, which featured her imaginary pets: Kopi the dog and Matcha the cat.

In this volume, readers are also regaled with often hilarious anecdotes of life abroad and comparisons between her home country of Singapore and places such as the United States, Vietnam, Indonesia and, of course, Japan. Some of her earlier works are also included here. Through her art and accounts, one realises that humour might be the best cushion for culture shock.

Our Story
Tusitala was born in 2010, with a focus on telling transmedia stories. We’re based in Singapore, perfectly poised to represent the breadth and depth of Asian content available in the region. With the world increasingly looking towards Asian stories, we’re both excited and proud to be where we are!

The name Tusitala harks to an island in Samoa, where author Robert Louis Stevenson spent the last years of his life. The locals of the island fondly nicknamed him Tusitala, which means storyteller. In our work, we embody the essence of a storyteller: using different mediums and techniques to deliver a powerful message to our audiences. Only, we take it a step further by introducing the exciting potential of technology.

Our logo is a kitsune – nine-tailed fox, native to Asian folklore and legend. In Chinese, Japanese and Korean folktales, the kitsune is an enchanted animal – magnetic, intelligent, powerful, and able to take human form. From the complexity of the symbolism, we derive simple principles that we stand for – potency, wisdom and creative rebellion.

(This creativity, we must disclose, often vanishes when determining where we should go for lunch each day)
