This month, in the spirit of Halloween, Fukui-based yōkai painter Matt Meyer is creating daily portraits of Japan’s traditional monsters and adding them to his A-Yokai-A-Day collection. Here are a few images from the site, which will be updated with a lovely new terror each day until the end of October.
Kuchisake-onna — slit-mouth woman
Akaname — bathroom scum licker
Nurarihyon — yōkai boss
Yama-uba — mountain hag
Hyōsube — river imp
