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!

City Night Speedpaint  Tutorial Video Linked  By Y by yuumei
I often get people asking for tutorials and are surprised that I have a free tutorial page. This a speedpaint I did years back to make a tutorial showing shortcuts to painting a city background :) You can watch the free tutorial for this and many other free tutorials on YuumeiArt.com/tutorials
Art Vs Artist by yuumei
Wow can't believe how long it's been since the last time I made an #ArtvsArtist . So much has changed but also stayed the same :)


Tote Bag Sale by yuumei
Starting today and ending on Sunday, I’m having a special tote bag sale where all bags are $5 off! They used to be $25 but now just $20 :)

Get them here before they sale out! www.yuumeiart.com/tote-bags/

These canvas bags are double sided, some times with different art one each side, and art on the straps!

<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


so yeah, I just discovered last night 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. 

A new chapter has begun! And now I also have a Discord where I’ll be sharing behind the scenes art, discuss plot, spoilers, and more! The Twatter, Instaspam, Dumbler, and Faceshook accounts seen in this chapter are cameos of Discord members :D If you want to cameo in Fisheye Placebo, hang around Discord for the next opportunity :)

If you enjoyed this chapter, please support my comic on Patreon.com/Yuumei

Growing Out

More winter inspired work. Now doing some of my old sketchy anime styles. In other news, I’m aiming to start releasing Knite this month unless something does horribly wrong again (I really hope not)
