Nobrow Magazine Presents 'Gods and Monsters'

The first Nobrow Journal is launched today and it's a steal at a mere £9 so order yours at Nobrow.net, you won't regret it. The cover is illustrated by the super awesome Stuart Kolakovic. Below is my contribution to the issue illustrating two Yokai, Nue and Neko-mata, dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller. Both of whom are featured and re-designed in the Bento Bestiary, that is due out very, very soon.
