Graphic designer and character designer Cesc Grané speaks about his amazing creations inspired by Japanese aesthetics and myth. Cesc began by taking cues from yokai (old Japanese monsters and spirits) and putting his own unique spin on their appearance and how they are connected. He tells us how the ethos of Japan has inspired him daily, and recounts stories of his fantastical daydreams involving monsters, heroes, and mischievous creatures of all sorts.
