I sometimes have trouble reading Japanese graphic novels. I usually love the intense illustration work but I have a weak stomach and I don't like to put images in my head that I'll never be able to get out again. I was a bit hesitant to venture into the realm of Yan Wei's work, but I am glad I did! The imagery is more wonderfully inventive than grotesque, and I love her sense of humor. The girls she draws are admittedly slightly disturbing, but so well done and so creative that she's become one of my new favorite discoveries. See more images after the jump, or on her website or blog.
