I once dreamed I was young again, and saw a ghostly figure on the edge of the forest, as if luring me to follow it. I pursued the spirit and discovered that as it ran through the forest, life sprung forth from everything it touched – fresh grasses, delightful flowers, wild animals – all beautiful and vibrant. I awoke from this dream and determined that this was a vision worth drawing. Hidden throughout this image are some of my characters mixed with some of the characters from various Studio Ghibli films – an ever-present inspiration.
