Each particpating artist was invited to choose one of their favorite mythical creatures/beasts to re-imagine and interpret.
My piece centered around a blurry interpretation of the Kappa. At first I wanted to draw a literal interpretation, but everything I did looked like dodgy 80s fantasy movie fan art. So instead I looked into the possible genesis of the myth. I came across mentions of Giant Japanese Salamanders; the gifting/offering of fish; a diet of frogs; etc.
