Here’s something I did for a competition. The challenge was to create a character that fit into Studio Ghibli’s universe. I didn’t want to do characters that were obviously from a movie they’d already made, so instead I made characters from an imaginary movie. 
Basically; two poor siblings (to the right) are on a long journey. Somewhere along the way they’ve met a brave knight who joins them.
In this scene they’ve come across the a wizard. Obviously he’s the best wizard ever because he has all the scrolls and books and cats and hats and wands and staffs possible. He can’t really move around much though…

We at PEOW! Studio recently had a small art show to celebrate the opening of our riso print studio.
This is the first print I did. The maximum size we can print is A3, so the details of this picture became tiny and really hard to see.

Here is the original, with a few detail shots of things in the city.  

Experimenting!
Testing ways of working with three colors or less when printing on the Riso. What might look good, what wouldn’t etc.
I’ve been doing so much work with a lot of detailed linework recently, and so I’m also testing if I might skip lines completely.
