Monster illustrations from âYokai Jitenâ
Umi-bĹzu are giant black bulbous beings that live in the sea. Sometimes they have glowing eyes and a beak, and other times they have no facial features at all. To survive an umi-bĹzu encounter at sea, one should remain quiet and look in the opposite direction. Speaking or looking at the creature may send it into a rage â and that usually ends in tragedy.
More great illustrations there too.
