I guess it’s nice to feel needed, but I kinda want to read. 😂
Here's a nice Oni boy, you wanna hang out with him?
Second part of the Yokai exhibition (Aug 21-Sep23)
Second part of the Yokai exhibition (opening on August 21)
Selections from the Bakemono Zukushi, an Edo Period scroll depicting Japanese Yokai (monsters). Shown here is a Rokurokubi (long-necked demon, usually a woman) and the Snow Woman or Yuki-Onna. Both of these yokai make star appearances in my story collection, Where We Go When All We Were Is Gone, where I have a lot of fun thinking about how these creatures might comment on modern human relationships. For more insight into the Yokai themselves, I recommend Lafcadio Hearn’s Kwaidan and the 1964 film of the same name. #ghosts #storycollection #occult #yokai #japan #demons #rokurokubi #snowwoman #writersofinstagram #japaneseprint #spirits #otaku #japaneseart
Really short and dumb so far, but this is part 1 of yokai! I already have a name for him and a general idea of what will happen, but I need ideas! Help me out in the comments
