One day late, but I’m starting the Inktober challenge! I will be making 31 illustrations inspired by Noh, a form of traditional Japanese drama performed since the 14th century. Its unique storytelling, music, and elegant masks and costumes attract many fans around the world. Even important monsters came to watch in the ancient times. So here’s the first one!
