In this video, Yan Wei shows us the creation process of one of her new characters and discusses an ever-changing Beijing, influences in her work, what others think of her style, a messy sketchbook, and her philosophy on venting.

The video's soundtrack is a song titled "Mushroom Pillow" by Neocha.com user Nara (Neocha.com/naranara). A special thanks to Blake Stone-Banks for audio support during production.
