The exhibition will remain on view through June 13th. A link to the Japan Society's website is here; a sampling of images from the exhibtion can be found here.
Anyway... I came across a Japanese sculptor (Ryo Arai) who makes sculptures of yokai, they're really beautifully done.
Here is the link: http://ebikani.org/youkai/hariko/mokuzi.htm
Akaname: A yokai known as the filth licker. You better keep your bath tub clean or one of these might sneak in and lick it clean, leaving an itchy saliva.
The first illustration for my next Yokai book. To spice things up I'm also going to have comics in this one explaining in better (and funnier) detail what some of these creatures are about.
