The Totoro Forest Project

Recently, I was asked to participate in an auction, entitled "The Totoro Forest Project", organized here at Pixar by the great Dice Tsutumi, Enrico Casarosa, and Ronnie Del Carmen. It's a really exciting event, which I 'm proud to be a part of. The description here, from Enrico's blog.
"Totoro Forest Project is an international charity effort to preserve Sayama Forest, also known as Totoro Forest. This endangered sanctuary on the outskirts of Tokyo is where director Hayao Miyazaki got the inspiration for his much loved character “Totoro.” Over 200 top international artists from animation, illustration, and comics are donating artwork especially created for this cause. On september 6th 2008 Pixar Animation Studios will be hosting an art auction event featuring all these fantastic pieces of art."
Doesn't this sound great? Well I'm proud and little shy to have my humble offerings hanging beside the amazing work I've been seeing pouring in. Congrats to all who submitted artwork for this. It all looks amazing! See for yourself, here.
Here's my piece(s).
