My illustration of an Oni from Japanese folklore.

Here is my illustration of an Oni.  Oni are a kind of supernatural ogre like creature in Japanese folklore.  Oni are typically portrayed as hulking figures with horns growing out of their foreheads.

I took the inspiration for the face of the Oni from a photo I took at a traveling exhibit of samurai armor.  The armor is from the Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum, in Dallas, Texas.  I thought the face mask had a very Oni look.

Monster illustration I started during a meeting.

Came up with this odd horny monster creature during a meeting.  This monster would not sit through a meeting.  It would knock over all the meeting tables and eat the projector.

My strange angry looking birdman monster illustration

Came up with this odd creature during a meeting.  Nothing like a good mind numbing meeting to make me draw angry birdman monsters.  We all can hope for the day when time-sucking irrelevant meetings will be attacked by bird monsters!
