If you recall, I have spoken several times in this blog about my past life in academia, the quarter-life crisis that resulted from it (not the full story), and the occasional spasm of desiring institutional recognition.
I am willingly! voluntarily! going back through the gates of the ivory tower.(more…)
For the past 3 years I had written my letters as personal blog posts - it used to be in comics form for the public. Will it ever return to that old format? Who knows?(more…)
I totally vanished* during December and January so here's a very large, very big, very gigantic update on my life, my career, my wanderings, and pre-2023 thoughts.(more…)
A small little romp on creative rest.(more…)
So I was pinged to this fascinating post that spoke of the strange muddying that comes from interpretating and appropriating epic literature. It was an epic by itself, starting from allegory to how people tend to project their contemporary sensibilities (or false claims) to old things to comics to the theory of Monomyth to fandoms. Here then my Alexander Comic emerges, and this is how I was pinged, because the author, Owl*, referenced that old nugget about If My Alexander Comic is Fanfic or Not.(more…)
About finding the true end of a graphic novel.(more…)
A very grandiloquent title for some ramblings (as usual) about the current discourse: the intersection of art-making and AI.(more…)
Quick announcement - I will be swinging by PCAF this weekend for a panel on Sat, and boothing (#51) my limited wares on Sun. Mostly I'll be chilling and open to talk about comics!!
Note: This blog hasn't been updated in eons due to [SO MUCH] happening. But no worries!! My residency period is starting soon. I can feel it.....
Since the All the Things That Mean Nothing post, I witnessed some more toxification at the peripheries of the digital spaces I am bound to, further shaking everyone else's faith in the constancy of platforms. (For context, I'm talking about the schrodinger blockification of Kickstarter, the fence-dancing of Patreon, and the farcical PR meltdown of Gumroad) More and more I'm thinking, boy, how far into the nuclear fallout of Web 2.0 will I tolerate until I say, eff it and bunker underground?(more…)
Well, this is Year 3 of the pandemic. My prediction was right. Internally I'm feeling like a skeleton dusty and dessicated from years of waiting to be rescued from the cave I fell into.(more…)
Reimena Yee is a graphic novelist, artist and flamingo enthusiast.
She writes and illustrates quite a few webcomics and graphic novels. When not making books, she lulls away her time with essays on craft, life and experiences in the publishing industry. Some of her thoughts of art and life are rather unstructured and will evolve over time as this blog matures, as they should be.
Currently committed to being Alexander the Great's death doula. Is a nerd for all things spooky and historical.
