A quirky celebration of the humble Japanese monster...
Perhaps inspired by the madness of Comic Con, today's Image of the Day is the awesome Yokai by reader Ali Glen.
Yokai is the general name given to Japanese monsters or supernatural beings. They can be fierce and scary like other creatures, but can also be friendly and helpful if they prefer.
Along with the brilliant array of strange spirits, we love the way Ali has managed to balance his composition without overcrowding the piece. The gentle sense of humour is a great little touch too- you can't help but smile at what you see!
