Haha! This is... this is adorable. I really like this. The watermark in the middle is a little distracting, but other than that, this rules. :]

Awesome. Your characters always look stoned out of their gourds. Like they're trying to open their eyes as wide as they can to take it all in. I think it's great.

what a lovely illustration to a lovely film. i know i'm going to catch a little flack for this but Miyazaki post-Mononoke doesn't do it for me anymore, but this one, even aside from the nostalgia of picking it up forever ago at a grocery store rental counter, this movie packs a real sweet wallop. you and your style picked an appropriate great choice; i'm glad you didn't do anything else.

let's go for a walk! let's go for a walk! i feel great!

ps. i kinda have to agree with Eric on the watermarks, did you get burned/ripped off once?

Man, I love it. I got excited when I saw the title of the post, because Miyaki is one of the people whom I consider my big influences. The piece is adorable and you really integrated the characters into your own way of doing things.

Peter, I do agree with you in a sense- all of my favorite movies by him, with the exception of Howl's Moving Castle, are the earlier pics, but I don't think there's been one I don't like. As far as the watermark, I've seen much worse but it's generally kind of a faux pas that I hear lots of art directors and artists dislike. In any case, can't wait to see it in person!
