GHIBLI SHELF

There is a book shelf in my room with books, games and toys which is where this idea started. I thought it would be fun to make a Ghibli themed illustration.

I’ve always wanted to do something involving Miyazaki’s work but I always seemed to find myself hitting a block and putting it aside. I wanted to finish something so this is the result.

Parents who dismiss what their children are experiencing or the symptoms that they’re feeling because “they’re not that disabled,” are valid.

Parents who constantly go on about how their adult children are “too disabled,” and will never be able to survive without them as a result? Valid.

Parents who only view their children as disabled when it benefits them are valid!

And it is done! Doing this took me back to my trip to Japan 7 years ago…and when I got to tour the actual Ghibli studios. That opportunity has shaped my career and artistry in so many ways, and so I am glad I got honor their work in this way. I hope you all enjoy!

Moonlight draped against her dark shoulders.

And all around her radiated power.

An old ancient power, like none I had felt before.


Last but not least we have this water witch for the Inktober prompt, 15) Mysterious. Inktober was really fun and brought out my better art. I will look forward to doing it again next year.
