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.

Totoro Forest Tickets

First sale of tickets. They are going up for grabs for the September 6, 2008 auction event on Monday starting at 10 a.m.

Monday, August 11, 2008. Each ticket includes admission to the catered event and a perfect bound book (french fold) about the auction and the Totoro Forest initiative. By buying this ticket you will be registered for the auction, and may use your unique ID to bid on items. Please follow the link here.

The mock-up of the book. Spot varnish over every image, making them pop off the page. Dice spared no expense.

With the admission price you get a copy of the auction's very posh catalogue ($40.00) featuring all the magnificent art available that day. We just saw the proofs for the pages of this book and you are getting a very special printed edition of this celebration. Check out all the other tiers of prices and accompanying perks and privileges.

Dice is as unstoppable and determined as anybody I've ever met. Nice guy to boot. Enrico has a way of making any spare moment produce results on anything he sets his mind to. I'm the slug of the team by comparison. Great team of people all around us who are spot on and dedicated. We will feature them on later posts.

Check out the Totoro Forest Project website for more information and a look at all work up for auction.
