Again in the private Wonderland of Wenqing Yan

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.

    1. Oh, Liz :)) … I do not have time to pursue any beauty now. I just fight to have some while every day (one hour at most) to be alone, well awake and free to do my way, be it online or offline… Look: today was Sunday; after I got up at midday –a foggy and rainy one– I was to go out as I have always done here (in my home and woods !), just to enjoy a long walk as I like. But I have been stopped and forbidden to do it for annoying (and stupid) reasons… I do not like this at all, and I have been closed in my room all day, planning my separation and my new loneliness as a minor damage. While I was on my room, I have found many lovely illustrations, anyway :)) (((HUGS and EVERYTHING ELSE NEEDED)))


      1. ***hugs. sweet kissies, braiding your beautiful hair, and making sure your warm bath with bubbles, and heated towel is ready for you when you return*** (there might be a smack upside someone’s head for denying you your own peace!)

        Dearest, and Sweetest friend – if only I knew how to help more. Candles are lit.🕯🕯🕯💖🌟💗

        1. ❤ ✨ !!!
          My hair cannot be well braided now, since I wear it quite short, but I dream and long for this bath of warmness and careful wipping by a friend afterwards (I lack this from old).
          You cannot help more than you do ! So, be happy and rest well, you and your dear ones. I will recover my bed for myself, my books, my memories and my stuffed pets when possible. Company will come from elsewhere, if I think carefully…
          🕯🕯🕯 🕯🕯🕯 ((❤))

            1. Ha ha ha ! I’m sure you can ! About brushing, I’m becoming scared since it seems my hair is getting weaker and I’m losing a lot of it despite the vitamins I take every day… What I lack is the main nourhisment for hair, as i well know from old: gladness. (I’m thinking of cutting it very short and try to buy a not very expensive wig… it could be purple or magenta or light pink, or any colour I would fancy to dye it !!!!
