Since it’s the spooky month of October, let’s keep the terror coming! It’s all about “Spooky” things in this week’s Illustration Friday.
The mythical creature in this illustration is called an Aswang. Aswang is a generic term used in Philippine mythology for supernatural beings like manananggals (half-body of a human, with bat-like wings), witches, shapeshifters, and lycanthropes. These creatures are described as having an ordinary human body by day, then transforming into a monstrous creature (usually animals) at night.
