Henning’s daring illustrations reference conventional Japanese tattooing, however with a slighly humorous twist. The artist is especially keen on Yokai — the Japanese perception that supernatural beings occupy regular conditions. A great parallel to consider is the ghosts in Studio Ghibli‘s seminal movie, Spirited Away.
In Axolotl’s lunch break, Henning makes use of an Axolotl — which is an already odd-looking salamander to start with — and illustrates a whirlwind of ghosts who come to struggle over an inviting bowl of noodles.
