All You Can Eat



Recently got accepted into a Monster themed art show. Wasn't too sure what to do until my friend reminded me of my obsession with Yoshitoshi's 36 Ghosts series. With that as a loose jumping off point I started playing with concepts from various Japanese yokai. 

This one is a pretty traditional version of a futakuchi-onna - a two mouthed woman. Generally in lore they appeared to be normal woman, who rarely were seen eating anything, but would be revealed to have a mouth on the back of their head, their hair forming tentacle like appendages to feed it and a voracious appetite. 

Didn't change the concept too much just moved it to a more contemporary setting. 

The original is 12x9 watercolor and ink and will be part of Insomnia's monster show this Hallowen. 

Prints and various other items are available on the Redbubble and Society6
