Axent Wear Update by yuumei
Axent Wear Update

Hi everyone,


Sorry I haven’t been posting a lot of new drawings lately. As many of you know, I’ve been very busy working on these cat ear headphones (AxentWear.com).


It’s my first time taking on a project of this nature and size, and it has been both absolutely amazing as well as overwhelmingly stressful. Both my co-founder and I have been dealing with new challenges that we never expected to experience. We have made first time mistakes and we are working things through. I hope everyone will be supportive and understanding of our situation as my co-founder and I resolve our differences peacefully.


In the mean time, I have been interviewing various product designers, audio engineers, and manufacturing experts in preparation for making the headphones a reality. I’m in close contact with a number of successful Silicon Valley consumer electronics executives and ready to ramp up to production and delivery as soon as I work out a few things with my co-founder.


Delivering these headphones remains my duty to the Axent Wear backers and my followers who have supported me for more than a decade. Thank you all so much for your continued patience, understanding, and support.

Aod Demo2 by yuumeiAOD Demo3 by yuumei



Hey Guys! I’ll be giving a live coloring and shading demo at Anime on Display (AOD) this Jan 31-Feb 1 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel of the San Francisco Airport. 
My panel will be on Sunday 11 AM in room event 4, and I’ll be at Dealer’s Booth S3 the entire weekend!

I’ll also be taking audience requests for specific drawing techniques that they want to learn! This will be my first live demo event and I must say I’m kind of nervous but I’m happy to meet everyone again after being away for so long!

I hope to see you there!

Something I drew months ago before all the headphones stuff took away my free time. 


This was a gift for my SO, inspired by our trip to the Monterey Bar Aquarium.

My Axent Wear co-founder won't agree with me on what to update the backers or even let me post an official update at all, so I'll just say it here, we're still working on the headphones, but we're sorting through some stuff slowly but surely.

And while I continue to wait on other people to reply, I worked on my drawings a bit more.

Hi there! I know that you may get this a lot but could you please tell me what I have to do to learn how to draw? I mean, I don't know where to start off with, what should I draw or how to properly draw something, I feel preety discouraged to even try because I'm already 17 yo while others at my age are a lot better then me(not sure if I can compare myself to others if I don't even know how to draw but still). But even so it's very important that I learn how to draw so I can achive my goal so could you please help me?

Hey, I live in Australia, and would like some of your pieces for my house. How can I get some that do not involve me stealing your shit?

I am happy to download a large file and get it printed over here to save $$ and stoopid oil consuming freight.

I think it's great art for my kids to grow up around.
