japan - laputa robot (jiburi de)



In the last week of November this year my sister and I were blessed to be able to go to the Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo. It was like a dream- such a beautiful and imaginative place . There is a room there set out like a real artist's studio, with concept sketches pinned all over the walls, messy desks with tools and paints.. it was just amazing.

The Laputa robot has always held a special place in our hearts, and so E and I were really looking forward to seeing it in its' full-sized glory. It stands up on the roof of Ghibli, countless visitors filing through to have photos with it- no one reaches higher than his 'thighs' on him. We decided that, since there was an hour-long wait to get into the restaurant for lunch, we would spend it sitting on the roof drawing the Robot instead.

And so we did.
