Akaname, lick your heart out: The Filth Licker is here!

2 Comments

Takeshita Demons - The Filth LickerWoo hoo!

Sometimes in this book-making business, I forget that we’re actually making a book.

And then — and it always comes as a surprise, even when I am kind of expecting it —

— a package arrives. Sits at my front door, all cardboard and plastic and customs declarations. I still don’t believe it until I’ve ripped it open and the precious innards are flicking through my hands.

Voila! We actually made a book!

For me this is Book #2, so only the second time I’ve had this enormous pleasure. It’s a pretty serious buzz. And still surreal, even though all along, I’ve known we were aiming to make a book.

And so here it is: Yee ha! The Filth Licker, part two in the Takeshita Demons series…

These books are a sneak peak. For the real thing, you can pre-order online, but you’ll have to wait another couple of weeks for your package to arrive. 🙂 🙂

I keep stroking the Filth Licker...he seems to jump out of the page. (Three cheers for Siku, the awesome artist)

One of Siku's great illustrations - our heroes run into the tofu kozo demon.
