Spirit fox

Was watching one of the animated Hellboy movies this evening (Sword of Storms), and was inspired by all the great references to Japanese mythology in it. I've always loved the idea of foxes being very strongly associated with the spirit world; one of the coolest places I've ever visted was the Fushimi Inari Shrine near Kyoto, with its miles of torii gated paths and little clearings full of small fox statues and small alters.  I was there around dusk, and it was one of the most magical places I've ever been- downright spooky.

Anyway, this is my drawing for this evening; clearly foxes on the brain! (ps- my good friend Rafael worked on the animated Hellboy series as well- he's a greatly talented guy : D

Thanx for the props. Awesome that you watched the movie. Have you watched the second one? BLOOD AND IRON?
Selma Blair makes fun of me and says my name when she is on the hallway installing equipment with Sidney Leech in the haunted Mansion.

VERY COOL STUFF by the way.
