With You by yuumei
With You

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. 

There are plenty of fish in the sea
But you’re the only one for me

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.

Happy New Year everyone! :D 

Sorry for the lack of new art these days. I've been super busy working on the Axent Wear headphones but I'll be back to drawing as soon as the headphones are done. 

In other news, I was originally going to Sac Anime in Sacramento from Jan 2-4th, but due to headphones related work, my good friend Kiba will be going in my stead. She will be helping me sell my books and posters in the dealer's hall at booth  B8 and B10. She's super fun so be sure to drop by and hang out! :D

Hopefully I'll be able to see everyone in person at the next convention! <3

Axent Wear Cat Ear Headphones by yuumei
Axent Wear Cat Ear Headphones

This is the 2nd prototype we made based on the suggestions in the comments of the first one.

In this new version, we've added over-the-ear cushioning, used different materials, added detachable cord, and a mic. The headphones has 40 mm driver with 20 Hz to 20KHz frequency response. The speakers and LED lights can be independently turned on and off, and there is volume control for the cat ear speakers :D

If you haven't already, please support our crowdfunding campaign! Thank you!

One of the original drawings I did while designing the Axent Wear headphones :D 

Thank you all for the incredible amount of support! We've raised over 200% within the last few days! We're excited to begin turning these headphones into a reality, and in the mean time, you can still pre-order a pair at the special discount price through our Indiegogo crowd funding campaign! 

Thanks again! <3

See you at Kraken Con!

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!

Just thought I'd drop a note to see how things were going since we'd met in preparation for Kintoki-Con in 2013.  I hope all is well.  I am still doing the con circuit to keep occupied and to keep sane.  I don't know if you'd been at recent SacAnime events.  Anyway, maybe we'll catch up at upcoming cons, e.g. AOD, (possibly) Kraken Con, Fanime and the other SacAnime?

Take care!

I like your art.

Recently heard your headphones idea is taking off crazier than a jet stream. Congrats. Did you really obtain $2 mill. for funding or did the site I see misquote somewhere? regardless, wish all the best with the project. Keep up the artwork and fight the good something like that.

I just came across a post on tumblr from August 2014 that contains two of your works "The Black Cat" and "The Raven".

Outside of your watermark, the user left it uncredited.
