Forest of the Sea by yuumei
Forest of the Sea

Inspired by the kelp forest at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I actually drew this over half a year ago but forgot to upload it :p

It's con season again so I'll be at Kraken Con this weekend 4/25 - 4/26 in the Oakland Convention Center.  My table is in the vendor's hall with my prints and books as usual. If you any questions about the Axent Wear headphone's progress or just want to chat and hangout, swing by and say hi! :D

Axent Wear Update 2 by yuumei
Axent Wear Update 2
Hi Axent Wear​ backers, this is a follow up update for this post.

My co-founder and I are still working to resolve some internal differences. I'm sorry again for the lack of official updates on the Axent Wear site. As you might know, I am only part of the company and not in full control of all decisions. I hope my co-founder and I will be able to officially update everyone soon, but I cannot make any promises since I am not in control of my co-founder's decisions. In the mean time I will make sure to update everyone as much as I can on my own accounts.

I have noticed there are some rumors and misinformation floating around the internet, so I want to clarify a few things. A website stated we estimate the delivery date to be in September. We never made that announcement and I've tried contacting the website but they did not respond. We also noticed that a lot of e-mails went missing when sent to the e-mail, so we've switched over to Please use this new e-mail for all future customer service inquires.

There are also a lot of misunderstandings about the situation with my co-founder. I can only say that it is very complicated and my attorneys and business consultants are doing everything we can to resolve the issue. People have been suggesting potential solutions in regards to my co-founder, and while I appreciate everyone's attempt to help, please understand that everything that can be done, has been done. There are a lot of complicated legal limitations to consider which is why my attorneys have been working hard on it. I also want to assure everyone that I am paying for the legal fees myself, and I would only use the backer's money to make the headphones.

With that said, we're currently looking at manufacturing proposals. While I can't make any promises. I hope to be able to officially update everyone soon with more information on when the headphones will be delivered.

I understand the delay comes as a disappointment to many who wanted the headphones as a birthday present or gift for loved ones. Manufacturing is a complicated process with a lot of unforeseen difficulties. I'm sorry again for the delay, and I completely understand if you would like a refund. Please send your name, paypal e-mail address, and order date to our customer service at and we will process your refund within 3 business days.

I will continue to do my best to update everyone and deliver the headphones in light of these complications with my co-founder. Thank you all again for the continued patience and support.

Victorian Cyberpunk Outfit Design


An outfit design I came up with when I couldn't sleep one night. Once the headphones are out and delivered, I might get a sowing machine and try my hand at making clothes :)

In other news, I'll be at the Cherry Blossom Festival again this weekend in the same location inside the Japan Center mall, near the Kinokuniya book store. I'll also be at Kraken Con the weekend after in the dealer's hall. Convention season is picking up again and it's so great to see all my con friends everywhere.

(Also, to the girl who gave me some delicious crepe at the festival last weekend, I wanted to thank you with some free prints but I had to pack up early due to headphones related business and didn't get a chance to give them to you. Sorry about that but please come by my table again this weekend to pick up your free prints!)

Through The Days by yuumei
Through The Days

Inspired by a hike I had with my SO. We started in the morning and hiked the entire day until the stars came out. It was magical seeing the blue sky turn to red, dotted with clouds of all shapes and colors, and finally the starry night with the faintest trace of the Milky Way. We live our stressful and hectic days, but it's calming to step back and remember no matter what's happening in our lives, the sun will rise and set, painting the skies in a menagerie of emotions. We all have to do is look up and breathe. 

In other news, I'll be at the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco this weekend April 11th and 12th, and the weekend after. You can find my table inside the Japan Center Mall, right outside the top floor of the Kinokuniya bookstore entrance. I'll be there will my usual books and prints, and I'm also happy to hangout and chat! If you happen to be a backer for the Axent Wear headphones and have questions about the current status and updates, I'll be happy to answer all your questions in person :) I hope to see you there!

Your work is incredibly beautiful.  For a long time I've said that true art is something that takes people's breath away, makes them think, and inspires change, and you've certainly done that. Each work simply leaves me speechless.
