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!

Bring Me the Moon

 Another painting of Fantine and Lala :) I’ve been meaning to draw this for a while now.

Ocean Forest

I watched Blue Planet 2 a while back and have been itching to paint the enchanted kelp forest. One of these days I hope I can snorkel through it :D

Unveil

Besides practicing environments with Photoshop brushes, I also wanted to expand beyond human busts to more of the whole body. So here’s some more tests. 

Truth be told when I hurt my hand years ago I stopped drawing as much and I felt like my skills went down a lot. Now that I’ve been doing physical therapy exercises and can afford to draw more, I’m really excited to practice lots and get my skill level back up :)

Iridescent

I had a sudden urge to paint iridescent colored hair. It didn't really come out the way I had imagined but I still like the result. The Chinese on her back roughly translates to "humans must be selfish"

Fisheye Placebo: Ch1- Part 9


This is the last part of the 2nd Chapter (which is confusingly named chapter 1 lol)! Thank you all for staying with my story for so long even after the 3 year hiatus. I'm excited have finished this chapter after so many years, and excited to begin Chapter 2, titled "Mutable". The next chapter will focus on Vance and his development (and more trolling by Frey of course). Stay tuned! 

Special thanks to my amazing team of 3D artists who helped me get back into comic making after hurting my hand. My comics wouldn't be possible without them!

Above the Fog

Daydreaming about the day when my SO and I can get some nice photos of the fog and the milkyway :D So in the meantime I painted it instead!

Dance with the Wind

Another photoshop brush painting I did last week. Feels like I'm slowly getting the hang of the program :D I've been really into painting translucent hair and dresses. I just love the way light filters through them.
