Did anyone else grow up with this story? There was a popular kids book that came with a stuffed Baku that was my favorite as a kid.

Never heard of it. I voted though, because I love the scratchboard look. Did you use an actual scratchboard? I know Ian Leino is fond of them.

Nah, Ian is great at that stuff, I just drew it in photoshop to look like it was scratchboard.

I didn't have a book or stuffed one (!!!) but japanese folklore was a huge part of my childhood... We would even joke about eating TAKO's... ;P
