I am following as well as I can the artwork by this Chinese girl of great talent (Yuumei (Wenqing Yan)); and I’m lost for words to express my admiration toward it. Since I do not have much spare time for blogging, either, I won’t comment much on the particular illustrations I present. Instead I will add the artist’s own words as read on her official website.
Both of the illustrations below depict a lone girl, looking sad and disillusioned, and a window; and both make us feel quite trapped as they seem to be.
“Lovely Sunday” (March 2018)
Yuumei tells us (amazingly!):
“I spent part of my Sunday taking care of my plants and it felt so relaxing ❤
This is a speedpaint to test out my new brushes (after I lost everything in an installation mishap) — This one took about 2 hours. (I actually recorded the process but I found out after I finished that the recording program had crashed 5 minutes in ;_; so um, no video for this one, sorry!)”
Leave it broken (October, 2012)
Yuumei tells us:
“[This is] A scene from Fisheye Placebo * that’s been stuck in my head for a while. I wanted to capture the feeling of melancholy, and a desire to leave things broken as a reminder of why you are who you are.“
* Fisheye Placebo is a dystopian cyberpunk webcomic you may watch in Yuumei’s official site.
(Again, I wish my sister had watched these works of art… She would have become enthralled, and she surely would have shared them —as I am doing now for the third time. You may see the two precedent posts, with more wonderful pictures, on this same blog.)
