She receives feedback from her readers, some of which has surprised and influenced her.

"I used to think that some subtle feelings I portrayed were uniquely my own, and wondered if I was too sensitive. But when I draw them, others tell me that the work strikes a chord with them, then my narcissism collapses and I realize that I am not that different from other people," says Yu.

"It gives me a strange sense of warmth, and makes me feel like I don't need to be too scared or too proud facing the world. That's really good."

This attitude gave the artist further inspiration. "It makes me realize that I don't need to worry too much about what anyone thinks about my cartoons when I create them. That is not arrogance. Creators just need to experience their true emotions and express them in their works, so that the sincerity will touch others," says Yu.
