I'm so excited to announce that my art will be featured in an exhibition: 'Spirit Of The Wind 2015: A Tribute To Hayao Miyazaki' in California, sometime this summer, run by 3tArts !
It's a huge honour to be selected for this exhibition because I, among millions of others both in and outside of the art world, have been deeply moved and inspired by the boundless creativity of Miyazaki and his team. I love how they depict their characters: always strong but not without vulnerability, always selfless and adventurous. The movies are full of spirit, and there hasn't been a single person I know who hasn't been helplessly sucked into each world, from beginning to end.
So now the issue is I actually need to create something for the exhibition. So tell me: who or what is your favourite Miyazaki character and why? There are so many to choose from ;___;
Please feel free to share your ideas on what you'd like to see me create!
(Honestly, there are so many to choose from I don't even know where to start. I love the style and setting in Ponyo, because I love anything to do with the sea. I have a huge soft spot for Spirited Away; I was maybe 13 when it came out and it had a huge impact on me. Princess Mononoke (the character) is one of my favourites because she's so wild, strong and free spirited. Kiki tugged on my heartstrings like no other movie and she can FLY. But I loved the connection between the two protagonists in Laputa: Castles in the Sky. Uggghhhhhh halp)
