Strange times abound. I've been occupied with juggling a script for a new graphic novel and my body's recent urge to sleep through everything. Still, the deadline moves ever closer... and the struggle to be a little productive during a crisis continues.
I came across this artist meme today and I wanted to do it! I used to do a lot of these back in my teen Deviantart days, before I moved to Tumblr and Twitter. Now that I have my own space to indulge in these activities, I may as well! It's good to have some fun now.(more…)
I get this species of art question so often that I now think it's worth making a blog post to answer it (for posterity). The question usually goes something like this:
"How did you find your style of art?"
Which is a valid question. Unfortunately, this is a question with extremely vague and mundane answers. Note: these answers are very rooted to my particular development as an artist, though bits and pieces can be applied generally.(more…)
On March 31st, 2013, I published the first ever page of my webcomic, officially debuting The World in Deeper Inspection.
I was 18 then: fresh out of SPM, and at the start of my gap half-year. While my friends and schoolmates almost immediately transitioned into Pre-U Lyfe (A-Levels, IB, STPM, ADP - wow those names sound so irrelevant now) I was adamant about getting a few months off - not to travel since I didn't have the money then lol, but to work on my passion project: an artsy, ambitious magnum-opus webcomic about a Jersey Devil detective and his friends.
I am featured in The Star’s Lifestyle issue today, in honour of International Women’s Day! I talk about life after the (oh god was it that long ago) Eisner nomination, my next graphic novels, and women in comics in Malaysia.
Reimena Yee is a graphic novelist, artist and flamingo enthusiast.
She creates the webcomics The World in Deeper Inspection, and The Carpet Merchant of Konstantiniyya; the latter of which is the first Malaysian graphic novel to be Eisner-nominated.
Currently writing and drawing a whole bunch of stuff. Is a nerd for all things spooky and historical.
