  • これは梅雨時期のとある日に。☔️
件(くだん)の剥製、と伝わるものも見てきましたよ。(撮影可)
今回の展示でやはり一等人気だったのは、アマビエの図。
#肥後国海中の怪 。
他の怪異のミイラと伝わるものたちにわくわくして面白かった。
何もかもが明らかにされる今より、不思議がいっぱいだった頃の方が空想は捗る。

  • I know it's been a while but I'm back. I've been going through a tough time and struggling with my self-worth a lot. Though I'm fully aware that my self-worth is not tied to my productivity, everything around me has been telling me otherwise and it's getting lonelier everyday. One of the only times when I don't feel sad is when I watch or read Dorohedoro so I drew Kikurage , then drew her in a bedroom. It's not mine because I don't really have a private bedroom, but I hope I can one day. I hope everyone is doing well at least ♥️ I know it's tough but hold on ! You're almost there ! And so am I ! 
Should I make a Kikurage sticker ?

This thrilling collection of seven Japanese ghost stories will captivate lovers of yokai stories!

Nuke-kubi: A masterless samurai is trapped in a house haunted by headless goblins.

Not all who die turn into vengeful beings of grudge and jealousy. Hone onna retain an undying love that persists long after their flesh has rotted away. This allows them to continue to be with the object of their affection despite having died. These ghosts appear as they did in life—young, beautiful women in their prime. Only those unclouded by love or with strong religious faith are able to penetrate their disguise and see their true form: a rotting, fetid, skeletal corpse returned from the grave.

  • ☀️it’s hot today, so I’ve been driving around in my car for the ac. It’s one of my favorite times to reflect☀️
✨
Since I use this platform as a journal a lot of the time, it has me thinking a lot about my lifestyle personally as well as the community surrounding me. I talk a lot about living authentically and doing what makes you feel fulfilled, but I also think a lot about the people that don’t have the same opportunity around lifestyle that I do.
✨
When the protests kicked up in June around the murder of George Floyd as well as the murder of countless other black individuals at the hands of the police, I really started to understand the structures that are in place within our society that allow me to live a privileged life, and that keep others from doing so. There are structures in place that keep the majority of the population from living lives that they deem fulfilling, and I acknowledge that. Everyone deserves happiness and it hurts that so many people don’t experience it in the ways they want to.
✨
I don’t know the solutions to the problems our society faces as a whole. I do hope that I can meet vast and diverse groups of individuals so that I can do away with the biases that I was raised with, and maybe make the world a tiny bit better.

  • Los Kappa
◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽
La imagen que tenemos hoy en día de este ser mitológico es la de una especie de lagarto con pico de pájaro y un cuenco en la cabeza.

Pero... ¿siempre fue así?

En realidad, esta imagen es el resultado de la imaginación del ilustrador Toriyama Sekien el cual, en la segunda mitad del siglo XVII, convirtió el Kappa original (en la foto) un señor un poco desmejorado con extremidades algo largas y cuerpo marrón, en el monstruo que todos los japoneses conocen hoy en día.

Hasta el maestro Sekien, se creía que el Kappa venía de una nutria. El maestro, sabiendo que habían unas lagartijas enormes en los ríos de Kioto, modificó la leyenda.

  • [EN] I decided to take August a bit easier since I hadn’t had holidays since Christmas. Not that I am having them now, but during this month I decided to pause commissions and work on some new prototypes (as modelling is the part I enjoy the most of my job and the one that I do the least!). Also I am spending a bit more time with myself, my closest social circle and, o course, Akiko & the other creatures! This year it’s a bit scary to ask but... how’s your summer going?

[EN] He decidido tomarme el mes de agosto con calma, ya que me di cuenta de que llevaba desde navidad sin tener vacaciones. Y no es que esté teniéndolas ahora,  pero he decidido pausar los pedidos durante un mes y dedicarme a modelar prototipos nuevos, ya que modelar es la parte que más disfruto de mi trabajo y la que menos hago. Aparte de eso, estoy dedicando algo de tiempo a mí mismo, a mi círculo social más cercano y, por supuesto, a Akiko y las otras criaturas! Este año da un poco de miedo preguntar pero... ¿qué tal vuestro verano?

“Eye Masks” - By: Unknown Artist & “Yama-uba with Kintarô Holding a Toy Mask” - By: Kitagawa Utamaro (ca. 1753-1806)
_______________________________________________
Created ca. 1890-1910 this very interesting omocha-e “toy prints”, housed at @artelinoartauctions ,depict a variety of eye masks that children could cut out and use to play with. 
Along with this rare print, I have shared a print by Kitagawa Utamaro, created ca. 1801-1804. It depicts Japanese folk hero and child of superhuman strength, Kintarô, holding an omocha-e paper toy mask to yama-uba ("mountain witch"), the yokai who raised him. 
Arguably the three most well known categories of ukiyo-e are yakusha-e (kabuki actor prints), bijin-ga (beautiful women prints), and fukei-ga (landscape scenery prints).
Anybody who is familiar with the term “omocha-e” is most certainly more knowledgeable with ukiyo-e then they may think. Most people will probably be confused upon hearing such a term, not knowing what toys have to do with ukiyo-e. 
You can see these toy prints almost like the supplements that are sometimes included in a children's magazine today. These are pieces that can be cut and pasted to make a picture or a toy of some sort. They're something Japanese children got excited over and used for a period of time, and after a while, as children do, they were discarded when something new and exciting was available. Therefore, as you can imagine, extant omocha-e “toy prints” are not only visually unique, but very rare to come by.
