Above the Lights by yuumei
Above the Lights

The urban jungle that never sleeps. Bright city lights masquerade as the stars above. A reflection of humanity. A testament to our hubris.

There's a comforting warmth to know that in the ruthless growth of society, you are nothing and yet the sky is within your reach.

Inspired by this photo series…

Inspired by the kelp forest at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I actually drew this over half a year ago but forgot to upload it :p

It's con season again so I'll be at Kraken Con this weekend 4/25 - 4/26 in the Oakland Convention Center.  My table is in the vendor's hall with my prints and books as usual. If you any questions about the Axent Wear headphone's progress or just want to chat and hangout, swing by and say hi! :D

Axent Wear Update 2 by yuumei
Axent Wear Update 2
Hi Axent Wear​ backers, this is a follow up update for this post.

My co-founder and I are still working to resolve some internal differences. I'm sorry again for the lack of official updates on the Axent Wear site. As you might know, I am only part of the company and not in full control of all decisions. I hope my co-founder and I will be able to officially update everyone soon, but I cannot make any promises since I am not in control of my co-founder's decisions. In the mean time I will make sure to update everyone as much as I can on my own accounts.

I have noticed there are some rumors and misinformation floating around the internet, so I want to clarify a few things. A website stated we estimate the delivery date to be in September. We never made that announcement and I've tried contacting the website but they did not respond. We also noticed that a lot of e-mails went missing when sent to the e-mail, so we've switched over to Please use this new e-mail for all future customer service inquires.

There are also a lot of misunderstandings about the situation with my co-founder. I can only say that it is very complicated and my attorneys and business consultants are doing everything we can to resolve the issue. People have been suggesting potential solutions in regards to my co-founder, and while I appreciate everyone's attempt to help, please understand that everything that can be done, has been done. There are a lot of complicated legal limitations to consider which is why my attorneys have been working hard on it. I also want to assure everyone that I am paying for the legal fees myself, and I would only use the backer's money to make the headphones.

With that said, we're currently looking at manufacturing proposals. While I can't make any promises. I hope to be able to officially update everyone soon with more information on when the headphones will be delivered.

I understand the delay comes as a disappointment to many who wanted the headphones as a birthday present or gift for loved ones. Manufacturing is a complicated process with a lot of unforeseen difficulties. I'm sorry again for the delay, and I completely understand if you would like a refund. Please send your name, paypal e-mail address, and order date to our customer service at and we will process your refund within 3 business days.

I will continue to do my best to update everyone and deliver the headphones in light of these complications with my co-founder. Thank you all again for the continued patience and support.

Victorian Cyberpunk Outfit Design


An outfit design I came up with when I couldn't sleep one night. Once the headphones are out and delivered, I might get a sowing machine and try my hand at making clothes :)

In other news, I'll be at the Cherry Blossom Festival again this weekend in the same location inside the Japan Center mall, near the Kinokuniya book store. I'll also be at Kraken Con the weekend after in the dealer's hall. Convention season is picking up again and it's so great to see all my con friends everywhere.

(Also, to the girl who gave me some delicious crepe at the festival last weekend, I wanted to thank you with some free prints but I had to pack up early due to headphones related business and didn't get a chance to give them to you. Sorry about that but please come by my table again this weekend to pick up your free prints!)

yuumei has been a member of our community for over 10 years, and certainly made her mark throughout the digital art community during this time. Beautifully detailed and carefully matched color palettes make up her distinctive gallery of inspiring artwork. Yuumei's helpful tutorials and comments of encouragement to other artists have helped many artists grow, and therefore we can't think of a better way to recognize such a wonderful deviant than by bestowing the Deviousness Award for October 2013 to yuumei!

Rejoice! I found you again!

I thought I had subscribed to you, but when I found out I didn't and did not remember your deviant name I had no idea how to track you back. Luckily, a friend of mine happened to post a deviation from you on her facebook page, which I recognized from your gallery.
