Eve Greenwood is exquisite, ethereal and exceptional. (There are so many words for awesome that start with E and most of them can apply to Eve. Maybe not eternal but everything else.)
It was so lovely of her to answer my questions, even though she is busy with her freelance work . Her home is in Scotland; however, you can find her in various places on the internet.
What are you working on now?
At the moment my main project is my webcomic, Inhibit. It’s a story about British teenagers with superpowers who weren’t good enough to become proper, government-approved superheroes. I started it in January 2015 and update it every Wednesday!
Who has influenced you the most as an artist?
There are so many amazing online artists who inspired me when I started to draw that it’s impossible to name them all, but Heather Campbell (Makani) was definitely one of the first!
Who is your favorite female superhero/villain/comic book character?
I love Nimona (from the comic of the same name by Noelle Stevenson) and Leona (from the webcomic Prague Race by Petra Nordlund)! I love characters with questionable moral values.
Do you think people expect a certain type of art from you since you are not male?
I don’t think so. I don’t think certain genres of art belong to any gender in particular, as is evidenced by the huge range in art styles and themes by any number of comic artists.
How often do you go to comic book conventions? Do you enjoy conventions?
I’ve only been going to conventions for the past couple of years but I really enjoy them! I love the atmosphere and how enthusiastic everyone is about everyone else’s costumes. So far I’ve only been two four but I’d definitely like to attend more as a visitor, and if my first tabling gig this May goes well then I’d definitely want to attend more as an exhibitor!
Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Probably a little of both. I love being around people but definitely need time to recharge.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Scrolling through Twitter or Tumblr and seeing other people getting excited about their work and their stories. It’s infectious! It always gets me keen to work on my own projects.
What do you do if you have writer’s block?
I’m one of those people who forces their way through it. Even if I know I’ll never use any of it, I always try to get SOMETHING down on paper until inspiration returns.
Have you had any interesting or awkward experiences since you’ve been an artist/writer?
I haven’t really had any awkward experiences, only lots of lovely ones. Occasionally people will contact me to tell me they’re enjoying my comic and that’s always so exciting to hear.
Beverage of choice?
Irn bru, and chances are hardly anyone who reads this will have heard of it.
When was the last time that you dressed up for Halloween?
A couple of years ago – I went as Loki.
What do you want people to know about you?
That I’m very excited about my comic all the time always.
What was the first thing that you were proud of drawing/writing?
When I was twelve, I finished a story that ended up being a good hundred pages long. It was awful and rambling but I was so excited about having finished it that I printed it off and gave it to my English teacher to correct. She was so kind and encouraging, she read the entire thing. I still have the folder with all her feedback! That’s definitely something that pushed me to keep writing.
