Drawings of Digital Art Memories

Digital art that reminds us of different times of our lives.

This is the work of Artist Wenqing Yan (Yuumei). Following, are thoughts of the artist regarding her work and background.

"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 pushed a few books. I'm currently working on the Axent Wear cat ear headphones that I designed."

Below you can see a small selection of Yuumei's work. I like to think of these pieces as memories the artist has. All contained in different types of glass jars. Rows and rows of bookshelves, with shelves full of them, A chance to revisit any of them at will. From bad to good and everything in between. A chance to open one up and relieve it as the first time you ever did.

I see the illustrations on this page separated in two sections. The first: Looking at the memories from the outside with a thumbnail kind of image, to refresh your recollection of the moment. The second: Where the protagonist has already entered the memory and is reliving it...

Which glass jar moments would you choose to visit again in your life?

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
