The art and ramblings of a disillusioned idealist, Yuumei.

Yuumei (幽冥 or 幽明) means light and darkness, strange and deep, hades, and semidarkness. Not to be confused with yuumei (有名) which ironically means famous.

“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.”

From the depth of the ocean
To the limitless sky
Open a book, open your mind
This world is boundless
So let your imagination fly

With wings of death
And crown of black
A sea monster more terrifying
Than any creature of the deep
Is this the epitome of man?
All pride for greedy production
So serene in self-destruction
If suicide is a crime
We would all be guilty

02yuumeiWith You : A gift for my SO, inspired by our trip to the Monterey Bar Aquarium.  There are plenty of fish in the sea,  But you’re the only one for me

03yuumeiFeel and Conquer

04yuumeiThe Heavens and Us

05yuumeiWhat it Takes to Fly

Hopes and Dreams
Lift me up
The weight of Reality
Keeps me down

The Sacrifices
I’m willing to make
Of Myself, of Others

This Hubris
A Selfish plight
An Endless flight
And I will learn
What it takes to fly


I will not sit
I will not lie
I will take my stand
and show the world
my vision
of a better tomorrow


10yuumeiField of Dreams

In this Field of dreams
Gazing at the infinite possibilities
The future twinkles
With dazzlingly wonders

11yuumeiEyes Unclouded  “To see with eyes unclouded by hate.”

12yuumeiThe Sky Beneath My Feet

13yuumeiDreams of Flight

14yuumeiSaid the Stars  

“Look up.” Said the Stars “And all your dreams will reveal themselves.”


I can’t repaint reality

to reflect the colors of my dreams

So I’ll repaint the reflections

and look down into my fantasy

Anxiety, depression, and the fear of addiction to pills.
The cure is also the curse.

Life is like a symphony
Between this performance and the next
