Here’s my first sketch of 2019.
Namahage is a Japanese new year tradition of Oni, or demon like figures, storm into children’s house, telling them to be good for the new year. A tiny bit similar to Krampus, except Namahage scare children into good behavior from January 1st to the 4th. It was originally a lunar event, with the arrival of the year’s first full moon.
Happy new year!
