Matthew Meyer

Matthew Meyer is the author and illustrator of The Night Parade of One Hundred Demons and The Hour of Meeting Evil Spirits, as well as The Book of the Hakutaku.

Matthew studied illustration at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. While a student, he visited Japan for the first time and immediately fell in love with Japanese culture and art (particularly the woodblock prints of the Edo period). He moved to Japan in 2007.

Matthew started translating yokai stories and painting yokai illustrations on his blog in 2009. That project eventually evolved into his first two yokai books, which were published in 2012 and in 2015. He is currently working on a third yokai book, The Book of the Hakutaku.
