It's time for Fanime! :D

Journal Entry: Wed May 20, 2015, 10:39 AM






Hi everyone! Thank you all so much for the amazing birthday wishes and gifts! <3 It's been a crazy year for me working on the Axent Wear cat ear headphones that I designed, and learning to deal with the unpleasant business side of things (my co-founder has been impossible to work with). Because of all that, I haven't been able work on my comics or draw as much as I used to. However, I'll be back into full swing soon with new comic updates and lots more art and tutorials. I've also been meaning to livestream for a long time now :)

With that said, I'm super exited to see all of my friends again and to make new friends at Fanime this year! :w00t:  I'll be there for the entire con from May 22-25 in the San Jose Convention Center. As usual, I'll be in the Artist Alley (table 623) with prints and more! Feel free to come by and hang out! :D

"To see with eyes unclouded by hate."


What I love the most about Princess Mononoke is that despite the ever growing conflict between man and nature, the story is an ultimate message of peace and hope. We should all grow and prosper together instead of fight against each other.

Again, in case anyone missed it last time, I'll be at Fanime this May 22-25 in the San Jose Convention Center. As usual, I'll be in the Artist Alley (table 623) with prints :D I hope to see you there!

Reflection
:bulletblue:FACEBOOK:bulletblue:TUMBLR:bulletblue:TWITTER:bulletblue:PIXIV:bulletblue:

When I was working on Before I Grow Up, my original intention was for it to be an environmental piece but the composition didn't work out so I redrew it in this version.

Months ago I was walking down the street after it had just rained and saw the reflection of the city in the puddles. The way it glimmered looked like fresh paint and made me wonder what it would be like to repaint the reflection of a city. What would I change? What would the future generations wish we had changed?

In other news, I'll be at Fanime this May 22-25 in the San Jose Convention Center. As usual, I'll be in the Artist Alley (table 623) with prints :) I hope to see you there!

Above the Lights
:bulletblue:FACEBOOK:bulletblue:TUMBLR:bulletblue:TWITTER:bulletblue:PIXIV:bulletblue:

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.

The art and ramblings of a disillusioned idealist.

I'm a digital artist, graphic novelist, and UC Berkeley grad with a focus on environmentalism and cyber activism.
I've illustrated and authored numerous graphic novels and plushed a few books. I'm currently working on the Axent Wear cat ear headphones that I designed.

When I'm not drawing away or dealing with the unpleasant business side of running a headphones company, I enjoy sculpting, hiking, and experimenting with aquaponics.

Your art is precious beyond measure.  I live in California and Chinese coworkers have told me of a life without stars.  It saddens me more than I can say.  Thank you for the knites, and for everything else.  <3

Hi yuumei. I'm sorry to tell you this. But, there's major art theft going on.

Please spread the word and get people to sign this petition in order to stop the art theft.

Beautiful art! The deep messages really get to me, and I love how such gorgeous art can express the problems as well as the beauty of this world.

Awe-inspiring, lovable and imaginative. Those are the words I'll use to describe your art but words alone cannot express how amazed I am! Will a llama badge suffice for now? (n_n)
