Mythology is a favorite topic, we’ve covered Greek and Norse so far, now it’s time for something from the Far East, or really far West depending on where you’re coming from. Japanese Mythology is pretty much about the same things as all other mythologies are, its all about explaining natural phenomena using giant animals, scaring the crap out of kids with ghost stories, and telling some sort of disturbing moral tale. The raccoons with Giant Scrotums on the other hand, is absolutely unique to Japan. So is the blend of Mythology and Folklore unique, where the Japanese religion is a blend of Shinto Shamanism, and Buddhism; all sorts of myths, legendary creatures, heroes and antagonists coexist.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Japanese Mythology.

All art work is due on Thursday, 5.15.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday, 5.16.13
