Synopsis of Mimosa Cafe
A small bakery known as Mimosa Cafe has been one neighbourhood’s main fix for sweet treats for the past fifteen years. People were more than willing to travel across town to soothe their cravings, but hard times in the city begins to slow down business. Slow to the point that the shop’s owner is contemplating closing the cafe’s doors for good.
Not only is the owner saddened by this, so is Ginger, the hidden helper of Mimosa Cafe. The bakery has been her home for as long as she can remember. She makes up her mind that she will do whatever she can to keep Mimosa Cafe’s doors open.
About The Artist
Name: Malissa Mackey
I cannot figure out when exactly I had become interested in anything art related. I read a whole lot of books as I grew up, which fed my insatiable imagination. A friend of mine even said that they had first seen me asleep on a bookshelf when I was little. That was, I think, the beginning of the whole thing.
I would have said that I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil, but I only started putting an effort into it when I got to Junior High School. My grades in art were never great, but I have always enjoyed the idea of getting something from my imagination onto paper. I mean, I have an idea that I like a lot, let me put it on something solid so other people can enjoy it as well.
At first I was only able to do more traditional works on paper. Pencils, paints and then inks came way later as I grew a bit more confident in what I thought I could do. As time passed though, I found a lot of tutorials and got a lot of help from friends trying to figure out different graphics and drawing programs so that I could work digitally.
I do not think that the learning process is over yet for me. Far from it. There is always something new I can learn from other people, especially the other artists involved with the launch of Banhua Revolver. I think that is what I will take away from this whole experience, because I am new to sequential art on the whole, but with the guidance and instruction of many other talented artists I think I have grown quite a bit.
Overall, this is something I really enjoy. I have had stories floating about in my head for years, time to unleash them on the world. I hope you guys like them as much as I liked getting them done.
