A little late to the party but it really deserves an art tribute. Finally! :D We will march toward equality one step at a time ‪#‎LoveWins‬

When I posted this on my Fb, I receive quite a few comments from bigots who told me they will no longer follow me due to my support of LGBT rights. So I'll just say this now to those on dA who are planning to unwatch me for this post, good riddance! :D

I decided to finish the speed paint :D

The details always take forever compared to the rough speed paint. It’s like I paint 90% of the picture in 10% of the time, and then take 90% of the time adjust 10% of the picture orz

And in case you missed it in the last post, I’ll be at AX this July 2-5th in the Artist Alley at table C56-57. See you there! :D

It's that time of the year again! :D Anime Expo is the biggest anime con in the West Coast and I'm super excited to be part of Artist Alley again this year. It's time to meet up with all my anime friends, make new friends, and have a crazy fun time!

I'll be at table C56 and C57 in the Artist Alley from July 2 - 5th with my prints, books, and more!  Come by and say hi! :D

In other news. I have many things lined up. I know I haven't been very active due to the Axent Wear headphones but most of the issues have been sorted out and we're now on our way to production! I'll have a few flights to approve prototypes but other than that, I'll have my life back :)

On my to do list after AX is:
1. Continue Fisheye Placebo
2. Potential collaboration with Tapastic to remaster Knite and finish remaining half of the story.
3. New collaboration project with my biologist friends to help endangered species.
4. Make a Patreon account and do live streams plus tutorials.
5. Finally make an artbook, and open up online store.
6. Too many other things to list! (Design t-shirts, try sewing and cosplaying, help out with art installation at Burning Man, more astrophotography, etc)

Spirited Away is my second favorite Miyazaki movie and it's long overdue for a fanart :)

I especially love the scene when Chihiro put her forehead against Haku. It was such a serene feeling of connection and bonding, as if saying "As long as you're here, everything will be okay."

“Look up.” Said the Stars “And all your dreams will reveal themselves.”


8 hours in Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop

I’ve been longing to take long exposure photography of the night sky for awhile now. So much beauty is hidden in the Milky Way that’s often too polluted by city lights to see. I haven’t had time to go out into the wilderness to take photos so I’ll be drawing the stars in anticipation.

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.

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
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!

I don't have money to commission you but I think you may have heard about a lion called "Cecil".
Your art is amazing and you can really reach a lot of people out there. Maybe you'd be interested in drawing him, so they won't forget him so soon...
