Yuqi is originally from China but now is mostly settled in New York city. Currently a student in School of Visual Arts in the Illustration department, Yuqi makes zines that are a fun, surreal, and an inventive read
"Both of my zines are about giving personalities to animals. The penguin one was actually the very first zine I've ever made. It came with several different colors, and I picked my favorite one to send to you. I think it represented RISO colors beautifully. The story behind was that one day I went to the aquarium and saw those adorable penguins. They seemed so used to people starring. They seemed lazy. They seemed like middle-aged men who had really caring wives so that they could do nothing on workdays except lying on the most sunny rocks beside the beach.
The second one was about the revenge of a Teddy bear. Well, not exactly a revenge, but a switch of the point of view from human to a Teddy bear, which humans became toys. It was pretty scary to be a toy controlled by others instead of a master of one's own life."
