'Beautiful World of Ghibli' by Barukurii 'Beautiful World of Ghibli' by Barukurii
*Please click download to see a larger version!*

Phew it's finally done! A tribute to the beautiful creations of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli. It'll be for sale in poster form at the London MCM Expo (29th-30th May). I wanted to do something special and I thought Miyazaki's Ghibli films would be very appropriate as Spirited Away was the first anime I owned.
Still adore it, though my personal faves will always be Castle in the Sky and Porco Rosso. :)

Each panel is a separate illustration, I put them on a page here so you can see more of the drawing and background for each: [link]
I recoloured eight of the panels cause I hated them the first time around, overall the whole thing took two days of solid work to complete (that's a long time for me haha)

Hope you like it and if you're at the London Expo please drop by and say hi! :)

EDIT 2: The posters have now sold out! Thanks everyone! :love:

Also, I have made a fanmix to accompany this illust! Take a listen and enjoy! :)

EDIT: Wow, I was not expecting the reaction I've received for this picture, I'm truly grateful, thank you! :hug:

Like a silly thing I forgot to add which panel belonged to which movie, so I'll list them here:

Clockwise from the top:
Castle in the Sky
Kiki's Delivery Service
My Neighbour Totoro
Porco Rosso
Princess Mononoke
Spirited Away
Howl's Moving Castle
Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea


Centre:
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind


I have only drawn the feature films directed by Hayao Miyazaki, as his films and vision are my inspiration- so my apologies for not including some of Studio Ghibli's other films :(

This is beautiful! You have my whole childhood in one picture! 
AND WHATS HORRIBLE IS THAT DISNEY IS TAKING OVER GHIBLI AND MIYAZAKI IS RETIRED!!!
Which means his new movie "The Wind Rises" is going to be finished by Disney... I know they just bought the rights but I'm worried about how the stories will be executed now.

Where did you hear that? D: Studio Ghibli's president is Koji Hoshino, who used to work for Disney Japan, a position he's held since 2008, but that's as much as I know... I thought Disney was just in charge of dubbing and theatrical redistribution in the West. Plus, how can they finish 'The Wind Rises' when it's already completed and being screened in Japanese cinemas? :? Just curious as to where you heard that...
It's sad that Miyazaki has retired, but he has been working on films for decades, and he's given us many wonderful ones... don't you think he deserves to kick back now? ;p

Thanks a lot! :) I'm jealous of people who can say they watched Ghibli films as a kid, I was in high school when I saw my first Ghibli film. :( If I ever have kids Ghibli films will definitely on their movie shelf. :)

Sorry I wrote that waaay too late (around 3am) so I was a bit spazzy hahah. I read somewhere on a blog about his retirement and I don't think I read it thoroughly enough and jumped to conclusions on that one XD

Miyazaki definitely deserves a break, he's done a fastastic job. I thought his son was going to take over after him, but it sounds like he's not too sure about following up his father. So when I heard Disney bought the rights and that they were going to release 'The Wind Rises', I admit I was bummed, especially since they already bought the rights to some other childhood favorites (ahem star wars). Oh well, thats the way the film and media industry goes I guess. 

Hahah and no problem! My dad was in the airforce and we moved around a lot. We lived in Tokyo when I was really young, a few years after Totoro came out. I remember whole stores dedicated to the movie, and my brother was born when 'Spirited Away' came out, I guess you can say that's how I've gotten hooked haha. Ghibli films are so amazing, I could never get tired of them

That's ok! It's easy for your brain to be very 'meh' when you're tired haha. :) I believe Disney (and I think Buena Vista which is a division of it) has been responsible for the distribution of Ghibli's work for a while now, and though I agree sometimes I don't like the fact they feel the need to add dubbed dialogue where there isn't any in the original (they did so in Spirited Away but since removed it) I'm glad that they brought Ghibli films to the west. Do you have a favourite Ghibli film? :)
That's really cool! It must have been crazy to move a lot, but I'd love to go to a store with a Totoro theme! ;-;
