A little more Amabie for good luck!

The Amabie image I posted yesterday was actually the second version I did, and (I think) the better of the two, but here’s the first one. I’m doubling…

Amabie wishes everyone the best of luck!

I love Japanese folklore, with all the ghosts (yurei), monsters (yokai), paranormal stuff (like ikiryo), but I also consider kaiju to be a modern day addition to all…

Gege-get on that!

Here are a few more sketches based on Gegege no Kitaro. Something I failed to mention is that Kitaro has a “cow-lick” of hair that tingles when evil…

Ge-ge-gegege-no-Kitaro!
