Akaname


Akaname, originally uploaded by Craig Arndt.

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.
