1000 Words book is ready for order here at HERE at 4DE.com :D



For previews and other info, please visit

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"1000 Words" was inspired by a comment on one of my other work "Tape it Back Together" . In the comment, this person told me when she first saw the drawing, she thought it was sad but couldn't connect with the situation. Three months later, her parents divorced and when she saw the drawing again, she began to sob. It made me wonder, had she shown something like the torn up picture to her parents, would it have made a difference?

This story also explores the purpose of art, what can be art, and what art means to me personally.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

:iconfanartist: made this beautiful tune for my story :D [link] :heart:

Woot! I finished my first ever one shot comic! :D It's 56 pages excluding the copyright page. I don't know how long it took me but it was a lot of work.

For all those who are curious, the little girl's name is Fantine, and the guy's name is Linus. I MIGHT continue 1000 W0RDS after I finish my other projects years from now :D

Drawn in Paint tool SAI, texture and editing done in Photoshop, web comic programming done in Macromedia Flash.

Please check out my other flash comic, Knite and interactive narrative, Rumination .

1000 W0RDS by *yuumei - It's rarely you ever see an entire community support a single artist like this, and when that happens it should be a memory well kept. This art is worth it, its impact is incredible. It's my honour and joy to feature this piece of true art. Thank you community for your MASS number of suggestions, we hear you. :) Well deserved *yuumei. ( Featured by OneFreeInternet )

Yuumei-Sensei, you are my inspiration. There is so much more to be done with art than just making pretty things. I didn't fully realize that before I came across your artwork, though. Now I have something new to look forward to improving in my work (and myself). Thank you for sharing your wisdom with the world. I'm certain it will one day be most grateful.

~I'm also really looking forward to your art demo at AOD this weekend. :D

My parents will never divorce, so I will never know the pain of a family tearing apart. But I do have my own gruesome set of problems, as does everyone. My story is sad, but not the saddest. My life is good, but not the best. Life is never perfect. This is an inspirational piece, to be gazed upon far and wide.

A half year ago my mom came to my room asking me to help her check my dad's phone... it never crossed my mind that since that moment my life would change so much. We discovered my dad's adultery with a girl even younger than me, and how he prefers to be with her because he blames mother over my brother being homosexual and me being chubby. After tears and a lot drama I remembered one piece of art that I saw in my younger days... Never in my life I though  I would understand it as much as I do now.

Thank you, really thank you... I can't explain it very well but your art helped me gain back a part of the peace I had lost.

Gracias.
