Hi, my name is Tessla and I’m the official portal keeper for Jelly’s Universe. I tend to stay in the shadows, though my personality can be seen in the various characters that occupy Jelly’s world.
The journey to create Jelly’s world has taken many years. From the start, I knew I was trying to create something different—not a novel, or a manga or a script for another medium.
I feel as if I am literally on the other side of a portal getting glimpses into Jelly’s life. This is how their world comes to me. I’m not the grand puppet master dictating the action but an observer seeing aspects of their life as it unfolds.
This format may be frustrating for those who anticipate a slick presentation of a story. Jelly’s story isn’t about the action per se, but about the life concepts that the scenes reveal.
Jelly’s world is presented seasonally. Jelly’s story is not linear. The telling of their world is like a letter from a friend or a conversation over tea where aspects of one’s soul is revealed over time.
This is not your ordinary story or world, but then again I’m not your ordinary portal keeper.
I’m passionate about making the world a more harmonious place. I’m a flamethrower on a mission with a normally introverted demeanor. I see things from angles that most people just don’t see. I’m eager to share new and interesting things, which is why being a portal keeper to Jelly’s world is such a great gig to have.
