time to show a project I have been working on recently and just finished for an exhibition/event in Tokyo, last Friday. This project was done in conjunction with the Kamishibai Bunkasuishin Kyougikai, the society for distribution of Kamishibai. Kamishibai is a japanese original type of story-telling, where a narrator will tell a story with the help of illustrated boards. Yuki Onna (The Snow-Woman) is a japanese ghost-story about a young woodcutter meeting a snow-ghost during a nightly snowstorm. The version used for these illustrations is by Lafcadio Hearn published in Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things. You can, if you like, read the ghost-story Yuki Onna in English here. All in all 13 illustrations, which would be shown shown one by one during an actual Kamishibai narration. All work done 100% in Manga Studio/Clip Studio Paint, original size is slightly smaller than A3. Enjoy~
