Encounters with the Imaginary, Volume 2 is a creature art anthology published yearly by Boneshaker Press. Boneshaker ran a successful Kickstarter campaign in September to fund the book, which will be released in April of 2018.
In the book, each chapter has its own cover illustration. Manuel Aquino and I collaborated on this image for use as one of those chapter illustrations. The illustration depicts Ebisu, a Japanese deity who brings good luck to fishermen. Manuel and I were both really inspired by Miyazaki films and shared a clear vision for where the piece was going, it was a lovely project!
