"I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. It was in middle school that I started getting inspiration from things that were prominent in my childhood; things like anime, video games, and the internet. I had a lot of friends back then. We would make fan comics and plan characters together. That is actually when the name “Yumi” was created. Back then it was just a name for an OC I had made specifically for the Naruto Universe. Now it’s an online alias I use to help open the door to my creative side." A.Y.
