Suart is an illustrator, a writer, a musician and a theatrical performer. His Tik and Tok series of books is written and illustrated for children and for adults. The stories are built on perplexing questions in life: What is real? How should we live? Where is meaning to be found? Are you free for tea on Thursday?
Five new Tik and Tok books have been published in recent months. North is the seventh in the series and deals with whaling and the far north. The Black Book of Falling is the first black and white full-length strip cartoon. Three early titles — The Storm, The Love of Learning, The Secret of the Universe — have appeared in Chinese, translated by Sunny Pang, the choreographer/linguist with whom Suart has collaborated on performances over many years.

Suart was raised in Hong Kong. He schooled and studied illustration in England before returning to Hong Kong to work in art, music and theatre. The band he co-founded with Kung Chi Shing, ‘the box’, will be performing their twentieth anniversary show Bluebeard in September at the Kwai Tsing Theatre.

Suart will talk for about half an hour on his current projects, in English and Cantonese, after which questions will be most welcome.
