Yokai Party
Yokai Party
Illustration for Fieperdepiep magazine.

They were kind enough to let me draw whatever I wanted,
and as I had been wanting to do something with Japanese folk monsters that was very welcome indeed.
Imagine my surprise when during making this picture I found out that in Japanese folklore there actually is a midsummer night's demon party!
It's called the Hyakki Yako, and it fills me with no uncertain amount of pleasure to have made a picture that therefore fits in an old tradition.
