RED DEVIL DOGS

BLUE DEVIL DOG
The pitchfork wielding, fire breathing Devil Dog travels in packs and tends to change colors depending on their mood and environment. Along with their color change, the Devil Dog's powers and abilities also transform.

When red, the Devil Dog's belly glows and they breath fire! They may look disarming but proceed with caution, they can also be lethal. Their destructive behavior isn't meant to be harmful; fire breathing is just a natural instinct of these unusual creatures.

When blue, Devil Dogs have the ability to create melodies that empower forces of nature to neutralize fires or other disasters they've created in mischief.

New breeds are constantly being discovered. Their powers and possibilities seem to be as endless as they are unworldly.

OSAKA MONSTAR
Illustrated by Dalek

 

The “Monstar” is a "Yokai" (a Japanese word for goblin or monster), a breed of Obake, spirits or creatures from the folklore of old-world Japan. According to legend in their 100th year of existence, worldly inanimate objects come to life embodied by a spirit. The umbrella monster (known as Karakasa or kasa-obake), are basically paranormal umbrellas. They’re tricksters that enjoy scaring and goofing on people. They like to be mischievous, (especially on rainy days) and gravitate toward imaginative types. Osaka Popstar gives an ancient legend an updated makeover designed by urban artist Dalek. Featured in Juxtapoz, Tokion and NY Magazine (among others), Dalek’s world famous Space Monkeys characters have tagged everything from walls to fine art galleries, Upper Playground sneakers, skateboards, video games (Tony Hawk’s Underground 2) and animated TV spots for Fuel TV. Dalek (James Marshall) spent many years living in Japan, worked under legendary artist Takashi Murakami and quickly earned notoriety as an urban legend in his own right.
