Demon henchmen, a vampire and even a hero get their own month alongside the year’s lunar animal in this colorful calendar.
Artist Kay Trinh explains that the project is an attempt to showcase the “beauty along with interesting stories” of Vietnamese culture via these unique demons, as shared on his Behance page. The mythical beasts include two of the demon king’s henchmen — Đầu Trâu (Bullhead) and mặt Ngựa (Horseface); Ma Cà Rồng, which loves to suck the blood of pregnant women; the bipedal demon dog chó đội nón mê; Ma Trơi, or will-o’-the-wisp; and the heroic, demon-slaying thầy pháp. Kay added playful pigs to each scene thanks to it being the year’s zodiac animal.
