Sickle Weasels

Sickle Weasels

The Sickle Weasel (Japanese: Kamaitachi) is a Japanese yōkai taking the form of tiny weasels with long sickles for nails. The creatures appear riding on dust devils and leave small, painless cuts on hapless people using the nails on both their hands. This is one explanation for unremembered cuts you may find after an afternoon hike.

Erin Garey – Original Artwork
Erin Garey was born in Minneapolis and moved to rural Minnesota when she was 6. There she grew up running around the forests looking for fairy-folk and making up stories. But Minnesota brings long dark winters, so she devoted that time to the devouring of fairy tales, myths, and comic books. This imagery and the narrative elements along with a love of nature continue to inform her work to this day.

After graduating high school, Erin attended Minnesota State University, Moorehead and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts before moving to Minneapolis in 2001. In 2003 Erin moved to Los Angeles and has since worked as a fine artist, freelance illustrator, and Art Director for an after-school art program for children and teenagers. Erin currently lives and works in Echo Park where she continues to search for the fairy-folk and makes up visual stories.
