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.
Interests



I finally got a Patreon after all these years! I was actually pretty scared that I might disappoint people if my hand pain flared up too often and prevented me from drawing, which is why I waited so many years until after I’ve recovered more.

Now that I’m healthier, I’m really excited to be on Patreon :D I’ll be sharing a lot of exclusive behind the scene stuff on there, from wip to secret projects and storyboard of my comics. Other rewards include HD files of my paintings and comic panels (without text for max art enjoyment), as well as full painting process videos and even 3D models that you can play with :)

Please help support the continuation of my art and comics at www.patreon.com/Yuumei

Thank you!

Fisheye Placebo: Ch2- Part 2


<h> DEVIANTART NO LONGER SUPPORTS THE LARGE FILE FORMAT OF MY COMIC AND AUTOMATICALLY SHRINKS IT. YOU CAN READ THE FULL SIZED ONE AT www.yuumeiart.com/fisheye-plac… </h>

DEVIANTART NO LONGER SUPPORTS THE LARGE COMIC FILE AND AUTOMATICALLY SHRINKS IT. YOU CAN READ THE FULL SIZED COMIC ON MY WEBSITE yuumeiart.com/fisheye-placebo


I discovered that after diviantART got bought by Wix, they stopped supporting the large display format of my long comic strips. Now they automatically shrink all files to 400 px width from 800. No wonder I was getting complaints from readers, except the readers thought I did this on purpose to force them to pay via Patreon, which is NOT TRUE. You can always read my full sized comics for free on my website no matter what, I would never force people to pay for reading my work. You can read everything in full resolution for free on my website at www.yuumeiart.com/fisheye-plac…

And now I also have a Discord where I’ll be sharing behind the scenes art, discuss plot, spoilers, and more! come hang out and discuss fun things!

I just found out that a newer version of SAI allows you to create particle/scatter brushes and I spent all of yesterday converting some of my Photoshop ones into SAI brushes :D Did a test paint today and it was great, so easy to use!


This took 1.5 hours thanks to the new brushes :D they'll be part of March rewards on  Patreon.com/Yuumei along with the HD file and art video :)

Hi Yummei!  Your art is so amazing.  Will you be at this year's anime boston by any chance?  I had to work last so I missed out on seeing your booth.

I wonder how many people can still tell what dance your profile pic is doing. 

Also. I really love your art. It is so full of... passion, love and emotion! :heart:

Hi! Are you collaborating with an online shop called vio-store.com? They sell items featuring your okami art. I was thinking about purchasing a piece but I wanted to make sure it's not art theft. I tried to send you a private note earlier but I'm not sure if it got through. Here's a link to the item in question: vio-store.com/products/video-g…
