Sketchy Sunday: Totoro

I’ve always been a sketcher, so I thought I would use the blog to showcase some of my work.

A couple months ago, I had the pleasure of seeing “My Neighbor Totoro.”  It’s a wonderful Japanese film that captures childhood’s sense of play and imagination better than most.  It’s made with so much care and patience, with a late-blooming subplot involving our protagonists’ mother being the only real sign of a more standard, histrionic children’s film.  Totoro is a mystical forest creature that our two protagonists, sisters, attach themselves to.  I whipped up this sketch the day after seeing it.

Looking at it now, he’s ever so slightly lopsided.  This annoys me to no end.
