2012 A-Yokai-A-Day Lineup

Well, I had a good rest yesterday, not having to paint yokai into the wee hours of the night, and today, it’s back to work! But first, I wanted to post the gallery of this year’s A-Yokai-A-Day series.

You can order beautiful matted prints of these yokai from my Etsy store.

Also, my illustrated yokai guide, The Night Parade of One Hundred Demons, is available on Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats.
