妖怪の世界 / Yokai no Sekai

Illustration for Hachette, 2016.

Yokai are japanese monsters and ghouls and have been popular for centuries in cultural myths and legends. I conceived this map with the help of Shigeru Mizuki’s Yokai Dictionary, selecting over a hundred creatures among the full set, and placing them at their local places of appearance.

私はこの地図を水木しげるの「妖怪辞書」の助けを借りて作り出しました。百人以上の生き物を選んで地元の場所に置いていました。Hachette 出版社、2016年
