1. Who are you and what do you do?
I am Yumi, and I am a comic book artist and illustrator. I made the sad web comic story "I Think I Am In Friend-Love With You", among other things.
2. What’s your hardware setup?
Macbook Air 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5 and a Wacom Intuos 3.
3. What’s your workspace look like?
A chaos of scratch paper, yellow legal pads, watercolor brushes that stopped being sharp, India ink, half-empty mugs of green tea or coffee, and drawing pens on my workspace desk in my bedroom. I also like to do a lot of brainstorming (like writing, story outlining and thumbnailing) in cafes.
In my head, making all those coffee sit-down sessions are okay because they are cheaper than renting a studio space.
4. What tools do you use to make your cartoons?
Primarily, I like to use Winston & Newton Round 2 watercolor brushes with India ink, though if it is a really quick drawing I also like to use a Japanese calligraphy ink brush pen. My ideal paper type and size is 11x14 Bristol Vellum paper, though I’ve many of my favorite comics on plain ol’ computer paper.
After scanning the original drawing using my crappy scanner or the scanning services at Staples or Office Depot for larger paper, I do digitally cleaning up and sometimes coloring with Adobe Photoshop CS5. If I want print my comics into a booklet, I layout my images on Adobe Indesign. I’m also addicted to yellow legal pads and 0.3 black Muji pens for brainstorming.
