Why did I step into the Unseen Shadows?

“Given the opportunity to work on such an exciting project as Chimera Factor offers unique and exciting challenges from a storytelling perspective.

My past sequential work has generally been a scripts with a very “slice of life” or not big action. Joining the US team has made me really excited to push my skills to the limit with this project.”

About Heather

Heather spends most of her days at home working on games, films and comics as a Concept and UI Artist. She shares her home with her Partner and two noisy degus in a lovely Warwickshire town, and enjoys wandering around the local countryside and barbecues – but…Not barbecuing the countryside. She’s currently working on completing her own self-published story SUNRISE, and looking to work on more comics in the near future.

Why did I step into the Unseen Shadows?

“I first heard about the Unseen Shadows universe through a friend, who then introduced me to Barry, Cy and Nic at Thought Bubble in 2012. I was really impressed by Barry’s enthusiasm for his creation and the energy he put into promoting the books, so I picked up a copy of the audio book to listen to while I worked and haven’t looked back since!”

Why did I step into the Unseen Shadows?

“The opportunity to work on a diverse and multifaceted project such as this was too hard to turn down.  Enlisted by friend and collaborator Virgil Yendell, I was honoured to be asked to provide the illustrations for his great story. Having also read Tales of the Forgotten, I have become fascinated by the diversity of narrative within the Unseen Shadows realm and have grown excited to become a part of its expanding vision.”

Why did I step into the Unseen Shadows?

“The more I worked with the characters I discovered what an insanely fun, vaguely maniacal globetrotting adventure it was. So much scope in terms of what to draw there’s plenty for me to get my teeth into and I fully intend to. I intend to give Barry’s source material a good showing on the comics page and I look forward to bringing it to life visually.”

Why did I step into the Unseen Shadows?

“I hate comfort zones. Wanted to work with more experienced writers, and with subject matter I rarely draw (if ever). Really enjoyed Fallen Heroes #1 so it seemed perfect opportunity. Also have a soft spot for Raiders/National Treasure type stories. Sorry if you hate the latter!

Also wanted to work on a new project where I hadn’t necessarily set the ball rolling – to see if I could adapt to someone else’s world as I thought my work would benefit as a result (selfish reason, I know).”

Why did I step into the Unseen Shadows?

I first found out about the project when Richmond Clements emailed to ask if i’d like to work on a story with him for Tales of the Forgotten. I hadn’t heard about Barry’s book or the wider universe it had spun, but had previously worked with Rich on Turning Tiger- a graphic novel for Renegade Arts. I’d had a blast working on his script for that and so jumped at the chance to collaborate again!

Why did I step into the Unseen Shadows?

Who would pass up the chance entering such an exciting and twisted realm ?? Definitely not a comic junkie such as myself. Not to mention that I was lured into this by Cy and Nic, with the promise of a maple syrup bottle (which I drunk) and some “brain candies” (which I devoured) !!

Jorge Oliveira

Current Unseen Shadows Projects: Fight or Flight


About Jorge

 Jorge Oliveira lives in Lisbon, Portugal, where he has constantly experimented with varied sorts of creative media since a tender age.  His very first passion however was drawing and sequential storytelling and it was about time to get back to it! After a hiatus mainly dedicated to music creation and architecture projects, the Thermidor project was the perfect excuse to go back to writing and drawing.

Why did I step into the Unseen Shadows?

While pitching at the 2012’s Bristol Comic Expo Jorge came to know the Unseen Shadows label and some of its well developed and diverse projects. He then proceeded to contact them sending in a .pdf pitch upon returning home. Barry Nugent later contacted to ask about a possible collaboration from which stemmed the Fight or Flight small story, featured in the second compilation volume by the label, scheduled to be launched by the end of that very same year.
