The design also comes from her appreciation of ancient style. With her father specializing in drawing traditional Chinese paintings, she has been immersed in the genre since childhood. "Even when I buy home furnishings, I prefer ancient style. I really like that," says Yu.

She depicts the tiny aspects of life that we often take for granted. For example, one cartoon shows her character moving books to the bedside to read later, but she ends up spending the whole night on her phone. Another shows her going to a cinema in the afternoon and walking out after dark, feeling disoriented.

Yu says she has a special interest in the small things that happen in daily life. "I really like to find moments that people may often ignore in their daily lives, and enlarge them, so that people can realize how valuable such moments truly are."
