About : I am a huge fan of My Neighbor Totoro.  So I was excited when I got this request for a sculpture based off the amazing short, Mei and the Kittenbus.  I was a little intimidated by Mei at first since I don't sculpt human characters too often.  But it ended up that the kitten bus gave me much more of a challenge!  Miyazaki is the master of making the fantastic look believable so I wanted to make sure I did it proper justice.  Six legged critters are always tricky with the anatomy plus getting the shape of the "cab" was a lot more of a challenge than I was expecting.  Really happy with how this came out!
