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.

After forever, my online shop is finally ready! :D Come check it out at :star: :star:

All prints are $15 for a single print, or $25 for 2, or $10 each for orders of 3 or more prints :D and we do international shipping~

J pop summit by yuumei
Hey guys!! :D My lovely assistant, Kat, and I will be at J Pop Summit this weekend in Fort Mason, SF. My table of prints can be found in the Artist Village~

I won’t be there the whole time but if you want to meet up and hang out, come visit on Saturday! And of course you’re visiting because of me and not just because of Pokemon Go, right? Right??? ;_; (I’m only on level 10, sobs) 

Better Tomorrow by yuumei
Better Tomorrow

Even when the world is filled with sorrow
I will keep painting for that better tomorrow
A repaint of my 2009 drawing, Hope and Despair. Some people have mentioned how this new version feels more hopeful than the original. I feel that way too. I've been very happy these days, and it feels like everything will be alright again :)

Thank you again to everyone who reached out and supported me when I was feeling down during the beginning of this year. I've been working on a lot of different projects, and I'm excited to share with everyone when things are ready!

I'll also be posting a video tutorial of how this was created by integrating 3D backgrounds in a few days. Stay tuned!

I've decided to revisit one of my old works from 2009 and create a new version of it. Here's the work in progress for Hope and Despair  :)

A lot of people have asked me how I incorporate 3D backgrounds into my 2D paintings, so I'm recording the creation process and making a tutorial video of it. Stay tuned! :D

It's that time of the year again! Anime Expo is coming up next week on July 1st - 4th in the Lost Angeles Convention Center. I'll be in the Artist Alley at tables C24-25 :D

Looking forward to seeing all my old friends again and making new ones as well! Come by and say hi :)

Oh my gosh!! I knew your name and outstanding artwork seemed familiar to me! You're the creator of Fisheye Placebo on Tapastic! <3 After it switched to Tapas I steered away from it and and all the other beautiful beautiful comics I abandoned. I'm so incredibly happy I found you! Definitely shopping at your store now <3 I love you, thank you so much for you work!!
