About Yumi Sakugawa

I am a comic book artist and illustrator based in the greater Los Angeles area. My website can be found at: Every so often, I make illustrated guides to mindfulness and meditation. You can buy a booklet of them here: ( )     In a previous life, I was the online editorial producer of When I am not drawing and thinking of new stories, I am drinking ridiculous amounts of tea, craving Indian sweets and dreaming of the day when I will have my own King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.
