2013 Calendar

Doing four ilustrations that relate to the four seasons. I'm relating a Japanese god/myth with each season.

Susanno - god of the sea and the storms of summer. He battles and eight headed monster which then  he finds the Imperial sword, that is passed down to the royal family, in its tail.

Jinmenju - a tree that gives fruit to human heads.

Enenra - Japanese/chinese spirit that is made up of smoke and comes out of bonfires. It takes human shape and can only be seen by those with a pure heart. 
Binbogami - The deity of bad luck and poverty. To get rid of it the Japanese go the it's shrine and kick it three times, hit it with a stick three times and throw beans at it.
