:star: The image is very big! It may take a while to load, and sometimes you need to refresh it or download it instead. If none of those work, try this link instead tapastic.com/episode/175227

If you're not familiar with the story, please read the Fisheye Placebo: Intro first. 

Hey everyone! After a crazy year of hiatus, Fisheye Placebo is back!

I'm really sorry about the long break between updates. If you haven't heard already, I designed and co-founded the Axent Wear cat ear headphones, which took away 99% of my time. I'm happy to announce that the headphones will be ready to ship soon and I will finally get my old life back!

Expect more frequent updates soon! :D And thank you all for being so supportive and patient with me during the stressful times dealing with headphones manufacturing.

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

Woooooot Anime Expo in a week! :D

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 26, 2015, 1:41 PM






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."

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.

Pretty sure this will get swamped, but is there any way to buy, or will there be a way to buy a soft/hard cover of Fisheye Placebo? :O

Excuse me, but I've found five people on Amazon who are selling mousepads of your work (yuumei.deviantart.com/art/Axen…).

I just wanted to let you know in case they have not asked your permission to use your work for their profit.

Here is my proof:

you definitly are my favourite artist! I love your artwork and especially your stories. Keep on the great work!
Just one thing I wanted to ask you. Can you show your WIPs for your comics? I would love to see that. Or maybe a step by step.

As I already said keep on this awesome work!
