The Bento Bestiary by Ben Newman and Scott James Donaldson

Published Jul 22, 2011

This cool little book is a collaborative piece between illustrator Ben Newman and writer Scott James Donaldson. The book is fully illustrated with Yokai, a group of mythological creatures from Japanese legend that exist beyond the natural world.

“Fourteen spirits and demons from Japanese folklore are lovingly rendered by Ben Newman in the bold and colourful illustration style we have come to expect from him. Newman draws heavily on early and mid-20th century design in his work, incorporating worldwide themes from European deco to Japanese film posters and 50’s American cartoons, never losing his strong sense of a most English deadpan humour. Each image is complimented with words from Scott James Donaldson.”
