wind in the poppies


“I’ve become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where two people mutually inspire each other to live. If I’m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.” -Hayao Miyazaki

Studio Ghibli (1986 - 2014) (Click images for better quality!)
↳ Ghibli means ‘hot wind blowing through the Sahara Desert’. The name was used for Italian scouting airplanes during World War II. Miyazaki, who loves airplanes (and Italy), named his studio after it.

Lastly, Studio Ghibli’s [potentially] final farewell~ When Marnie Was There (2014).

They say that the brightest spark burns best when circumstances are their worst. (Howl’s Moving Castle)

Just follow your heart and keep smiling. (Kiki’s Delivery Service)

Once you’ve met someone, you never really forget them. (Spirited Away)

Destroy the old and you destroy the memory of the past. (From Up a Poppy Hill)

You cannot change your fate. However, you can rise to meet it. (Princess Mononoke)

Do not fear the winds of adversity. Remember, a kite rises against the wind rather than against with it. (The Wind Rises)

In this world, there’s an invisible, magic circle. There’s an inside and an outside. And I’m outside. –I’ll be just fine from the outside. (When Marnie was There)

“The creation of a single world comes from a huge number of fragments and chaos.”
— Hayao Miyazaki

sometimes you have to fight for the things that are worth fighting for.

a print i made celebrating (most of) the wonderful heroines from studio ghibli (+nausicaa) films. i love them all so much for everything they’ve taught me and helped me get through over the years and i wanted to do something to put that down on paper. you’ll be able to get this this weekend at san japan, artist alley table b209!
