Artist Spotlight: Totoro and Friends

You can never have enough Totoro fan art, it seems. I’m always amazed at the level of creativity and inspiration this humble little movie has spawned. Sometimes I have to pinch myself and remember that My Neighbor Totoro was an extremely obscure movie in the West as recently as a decade ago. Yes, it had a measure of success on home video (read: VHS), but the wider public never really discovered Miyazaki. Today, there is a thriving and growing fan community.

I really like this painting, which incorporates several Hayao Miyazaki characters into a Classical Japanese watercolor art style. We even see a cameo by the director himself in the background. Totoro shares the spotlight with No-Face, the Soot Sprites, a Kodama and Catbus, who appears as a kite. The composition is nicely balanced, which is a challenge when there’s so many characters in view.

The artist who created this piece did an excellent job. Unfortunately, I was not able to discover the artist’s name, so if you know who is responsible for this painting, please pass it along so that we can give proper credit.
