Jamaica Dyer’s watercolours bring new life to ‘JellyWolf’ the short film by Alma Har’el.

Jamaica Dyer is a San Francisco-based illustrator and games designer who turned JELLYWOLF, the film by Alma Har’el for The Fifth Sense, into an incredible graphic novel. What started as a piece of fanart, is now a full, luscious and badass published novel, transporting Alma’s cinematography into liquid dreams.

The film is saturated in deep, lurid colour and tells the mythic tale of a girl tapping into ancient female power through scent. ‘Visionary and high-end and immense like a Jodorowsky film’, Dyer tweeted that she loved the film and that it should be a comic. She drew some stills from Jellywolf in her sketchbook (‘when I see something I really love, then I have to draw it’), posted them online and Har’el challenged Dyer to make a comic version of the film, embodying a completely new type of crossover between film, fashion and comics.

“I immediately felt at home in this world because I see it in my own dreams.”

Jamaica Dyer

“The film brought Alma Har’el and I together. Our relationship built purely on ideas and imagery. I painted the sister book to mirror her film out of compulsion. Through the magnetism of Jellywolf we created a universe of our own design.”

Jamaica Dyer

“Jamaica’s spell binding water colours brought new life to this dream. Remember your voice.”
