Jay Ryan: Thunderbeast (Raiju)
Reknowned poster artist, Jay Ryan has always been very generous with me (and everyone he has ever met it seems). He made time to contribute to Beasts! at an incredibly busy time: He delivered the work to me the night his book tour stopped in town.
Raiju the Japanese Thunderbeast tears about the earth when storms brew. The rodent-like creature seeks to take up quarters in people's navels so at times of rain you are advised to keep your bellybutton covered while asleep.
