A very Happy 72nd Birthday to Miyazaki-sensei! May forest spirits and dragon rivers bless you with superhuman health and strength so the rest of us can continue be inspired for decades to come. Miyazaki Club 4 Life!
My annual birthday drawings from 2011, 2012, and 2013.
Studio Ghibli have officially announced their next two releases, to be in theatres in 2013. Hayao Miyazaki’s ‘Kaze Tachinu’ (The Wind Rises), and Isao Takahata’s ‘Kaguya-hime no Monogatari’ (The Tale of Princess Kaguya).
I’ve been asked a fair few times in the past to post up photos of my entire collection of Japanese Ghibli DVDs, and after much procrastination, here it is #^__^
ROW 1 Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Grave of the Fireflies
ROW 2 My Neighbour Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Only Yesterday
