Freaky Japanese Art by Gōjin Ishihara

by Ghastly McNasty

Interesting discovery on Pink Tentacle, a site dedicated to weird Japanology. There’s a post covering a collection of illustrations by Gōjin Ishihara that appeared in a load of Japanese kids books from the 70’s.

Above is just a handful of these unusual illustrations. You can view more of these creepy pictures by visiting the original Pink Tentacle article. Useful for inspiration in the horror department.
