Info Updates & Mustache Cupcakes

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 3, 2012, 2:43 PM

Hey guys! It's been a while and I haven't been too active on dA this past month but here's the journal to keep you all updated:

I've been busy speeding up the schedule so I can release my next webcomic, Fisheye Placebo Fisheye Placebo: Concept Art by yuumei as soon as possible. The current release date is set to early 2013. :w00t:

That means Knite had to slow down a bit since it's difficult to work on 2 projects at once. However, I still aim to update Knite ch5 beta strips around once a week. You may have noticed that in the past, I posted Knite in full chapter flash format, but I really enjoyed posting beta pages on my :iconknites: account since this allowed more audience interaction. The problem was switching between accounts was too much pain, and updating several pages a day flooded people's accounts. In the end, I decided to post strips on this account instead. The strips will only be posted once a week so if you don't want to be spoiled, just ignore the strips :)

In other news, I have several other social networking/media accounts for various things, but I never fully explained the purpose of each, so here is the list:

:bulletorange:  Facebook (Yuumei page) this is where I post a lot of work in progress sketches, character design doodles, and other miscellaneous art stuff that I don't always post on dA like this dragon fox design for example:

:bulletorange: Facebook (Wenqing Yan account) this was actually my private fb account for real life friends, but about a year ago, fb magically advertised my account on other people's walls without my knowledge or consent. I received so any friend requests in a few days that I gave up on the privacy and made it public. This account is where I talk about random daily life, post photos of bedheads and mustache related material that friends keep giving me. This is also where I interact with the role players. A while back, someone made a Kai fb account, and from there, it exploded into hundreds of role playing accounts for all Knite, Fisheye Placebo, and other story characters. If you're interested in joining this fun community of crazy people, you'll find them on my fb account XD
My friend made these mustache cupcakes for me :heart:

:bulletorange: Tumblr Very similar to the Yuumei fb page where I post WIP and design sketches. My close friends are all tumblr addicts and I was compelled to get one XD

:bulletorange: Twitter All of my dA updates are twitted, but I don't really post WIP or sketches up there. However Twitter is where I do most of my hacker stalking lol if you look at the list of accounts that I follow, 95% of them belong to hacker groups talking about their latest victories. (I'm doing this as part of my research for Fisheye Placebo which is a cyber punk story)

:bulletorange: Anipan I just got this a few days ago so there's not much in my gallery yet, but it's basically an English version of Pixiv or Anime only version of Deviantart. I discovered a lot of amazing anime artists on there and I would definitely recommend it for anime fans. :)

One last thing, anyone who has pre-ordered the 1000 Words book and still have not received the book yet, I've explained in this journal why there was such a huge delay Since the first batch of books they sent us were substandard, we had to reprint everything and that took a long time. The new batch is currently being held at customs and we will get them signed and mailed out as soon as customs release them. If you have any questions about the book's status, please e-mail them to Please do not ask me about it because I am just the artist, I do not handle the sales myself and can't help you. Please contact the publisher at  instead.

Thank you so much for your constant support and patience! :hug:

Thank you for this fabulous update.
I was rather certain that the account with your real name was private so i didn't friend you for that reason, plus i had already friended Yuumei and Knite and i saw no reason to friend you a third time.
I'm so excited for Fisheye Placebo, i've seen a lot of pictures about it but never knew what it was. i looked it up on Google and couldn't find anything. my two conclusions where: it's from another country or you haven't made it yet. I guess my second one was correct.
you are an amazing artist and writer i am so happy for you because i know this i what you love doing more then anything and i am so proud to be one of the many people that help you continue doing it.
I have no idea why i' putting all of this into one comment but sometimes i just feel like i should. but what i don't feel is to give you criticism, that's for another time and another place.
Again, thank you and good luck.
