My Neighbor Totoro! for Joe Bowen

Grace and I were delighted to receive the incredible drawing of Totoro from Hayao Miyazaki’s film “My Neighbod Totoro.” It’s a film we’ve never seen, but after drawing Totoro, Grace wants to. And, I’m thrilled.

The art came from a very talented artist, Joe Bowen. Joe’s┬árendition of Gizmoduck from Disney’s Ducktales was recently featured on “Best Art Ever.”┬áThis led us to Joe’s blog, which offers an incredibly diverse collection of art and … drum roll … his “Scott Bakula vs. The World” riff on Scot Pilgrim. Awesome. Check out his site:

And, Joe gave us great advice for artists of all ages and skills: “Don’t be afraid to try new things! If you’ve gotten pretty good at drawing with a pencil and pen, try painting! Try digital art! There are sooo many great mediums, that sometimes it’s creatively refreshing to try something completely foreign.” Thanks, Joe! And, for you …
