On artistic duties is seasoned veteran Bernadinus Gita.The Batam, Indonesia, resident stole the job from many talented candidates with his incredible art style, work ethic and enthusiasm for the project. Upon talking to the talented artist it was obvious to Jamie that a rapport was building, and that a combination of talents would yield the level of product he desired. The finishes touches of the project after the artist has finished the lineart, and flatting is completed, will see young coloring talent Jake Klessteam up again with the Queen creator. The two first collaborated on a 2 page comic called ‘Made In America’ back in 2014*.
The project itself will be hitting Kickstarter in May with a projected timeline that runs with the UK general election, results and aftermath. The amount asked for will be a humble one, highly achievable, and all money invested so far has come from the writers new lettering career and personal savings. Planning for this project has taken a full year, and has allowed for a higher than usual level of preview. We are happy to announce that the project will feature a fully lettered six page preview to, no pun intended, kick things off.
About Jamie Mewas & The History of Queen
The project started back in 2013 when the writer Jamie Mewas receiving therapy for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. While struggling to come to terms with a mental condition he found escape by creating a world in his mind where he could confront some of the themes he feared: corruption, racism, sexism and wanting to have control. The character he dreamed about used hacking, a method used to access information illegally, as a means of manipulating the world to how they wanted it using their own unique ideology.
Back in 2013 it wasn’t possible for Jamie to turn this story into a work of fiction. His condition prevented him from going outside, interacting with people and from even touching a computer for an extended period of time. Fast forward to 2015 and with the help of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy he is managing, progressing rapidly, and seeking to bring an important part of his journey towards better mental health alive for all to read.
