Welcome to the Supermarkedonians Online Content.
Here you will find additional content to accompany the print(s), that you purchased, relating to this project. In the future, we’ll look to update this page, with more content that will expand on the world of the Supermarkedonians.
Supermarkedonians is a collaborative project, developed from an idea, by my friend and fellow illustrator, TH Yu. It involves three artists, including TH Yu‘s partner, Liona Wu, and myself. Without giving too much away, the more you look into the characters, the more apparent it becomes what they represent. This is also very true for those based in the UK, so we invite you to have fun discovering the true origins of the project.
Have fun and Stay inspired always! - Oniphoenix
Introducing the Supermarkedonians…
“In the strange world of the Supermarkedonians nothing may be what it seems. The people who inhabit it could just be representations of places you know very well..in fact you probably visited one of them today…”
Here are my four Supermarkedonians:
“Enshrined in a glorious palace of ice in the far north resides Iceleen, immortal and benevolent. With her untold wealth she has maintained the largest orphanage the world has ever seen for all her long years. A haven of family warmth in a snowy wasteland. Although it may be a bit cold for most of the year all of her charges live in comfort”
“Although many of the Supermarkedonians preside over countries and continents Nissy’s influence spreads the farthest. Many agents of the rich and powerful have tried to insidiously work their way in to this most secret of all societies. It seems that only the lowly and humble are allowed entry. Many in the aristocracy think that the Nissiites are planning anarchy or revolution…they might be right. Nissy herself certainly won’t say anything.”
“Not much is known about Holfud, only that in some dark time he turned away from the world of industry and embraced the organic. He harbours a deep distrust of anything manufactured and will only take time out from his nomadic lifestyle in the company of nature. He is on a constant search for his ‘promised land’ of carrots and apples and, although usually a peaceful individual, will go through anyone or anything to get there”
“Stepping out of the trailing fog, San cuts an impressive figure in the streets and alleyways of the world. No one has ever seen his face for he wears a strange golden mask at all times, a trademark of the mysterious golden drops brotherhood. Some think, with regards to his archaic fashion sense, that he is a stranded time traveller and that the golden drops are somehow part of all of that. If he can earn enough standing doing nefarious tasks for them maybe he can get to go home?”

- Iceileen was going to have blocks of ice stacked next to her and the child, but opted for the small ice statue. Also a hat was going to be added, but was left out.
- Nissy‘s original concept was to be a group of small robots that form a bigger robot.
- Holfud‘s initial concept was going to be far more bizarre with all sorts of fruit and veg as clothing or even a fruit salad style hat.
- San was going to have a more modern businessman look with some tech displays, and his hair style was going to be the shape of his current mask.
- There was the possibility of a few more character, but they wouldn’t of fit with the theme as well.
- We initially looked at producing the project as a book. It could still be considered for the future.
