Writer / Illustrater
Jade is the writer and illustrator of the indie graphic novel series Game Over, an action adventure parody series with an east-meets-west style. Game Over is about a Gamer named Tristan who wishes that he could play video games instead of taking tests in school. One day, his wish is mysteriously granted! Every time he takes a test thereafter, he is virtually transported into a video game realm: if he beats the game, he passes the test. Game Over currently has four books released with a fifth on the way this summer.
She has been creating art through Bento Studios since 2007 and exhibiting since 2008 at conventions like Megacon, Florida Supercon, Tampa Bay Comic Con, and MomoCon.
Jade specializes in illustration, character design, and action-style portraits. She accepts a limited number of commissions at each show, but pre-orders are available. Jade also hosts panels and tutorials at conventions and online, teaching other fans who are interested in entering the world of indie comics how to do what she does. She also has a free webcomic series on the way!
