The Art Of Madame’s House - Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989)
“I’d like that delivered to a person named Kiki, because she did a big favor for me the other day. It's my way of saying “Thank you’. I’d also be happy if at the same time you would find out her birthday. Then I can bake another cake…” - Madame.
Here’s that Ghibli movie flowchart I tweeted about making last week. I couldn’t decide which film to watch, so I drew this to help me choose, and in the end I didn’t have enough time to watch a movie anyway.
The animated advertisement for Cup Noodle features an exchange between the now 17 year old Kiki and Tombo after Kiki notices another girl at school has a crush on Tombo:
Kiki: “I’m going on ahead!”
Tombo: “Kiki, watch out!”
Narration: “I’m Kiki, 17 years old. Will I be able to deliver my feelings to him? Now, there’s magic in youth.”
Kiki: “Tombo, there’s something I have to give you.”
Kiki: “I love you!”
After the last painting my hands were a bit damaged, so I wanted to do something a bit more free feeling. This was a nice exercise in mark making and trying to salvage texture in a digital painting. And yes, I fell in to the trap of thinking impressionism would be simple… but found out it was more than I bargained for xD
Based on the Monet painting “Woman with a Parasol”.
