I watched a lot of cartoons and movies. I draw incessantly and carry a sketchbook everywhere. I work in animation and self-publish my books. There are monsters in the streets, don't wear red. Mad bulls and monsters hate that color. I still watch cartoons.

Totoro Forest--Forest Heroes gets one of these!

Gouache and watercolor on cold press watercolor board, approximately 6" x 8". Nina appears care of Paper Biscuit Industries.

A little Sumpin' sumpin'. The Forest Hero level tickets ($500) not only gets you into the auction and entitles you to the wondrous catalog of images of all the art it also means that you get a bookplate to come along with it. That bookplate will be especially made, original art--actual media, people--created by our artist friends: Enrico Casarosa, Dice Tsutsumi, Bill Presing, Scott Morse and yours truly.

Above is my first contribution to this pool. I hope to do at least two more. Check out the others made by the guys on our Totoro Forest Blog. Just our way of showing our appreciation to our Forest Heroes for supporting this cause.

See you all soon.

Hey Ronnie! It's been a while since I last commented here, but I just gotta say how awesome all this Totoro project art is. I wonder if Miyazaki has publicly reacted to any of this yet...

Great pieces and great intentions... makes me inspired to continue to be an artist.
