Taking inspiration from the classic animated films of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, these fantasy art prints take a minimalist approach to their design as well as featuring a significant icon from each film. This listing is for all nine 11×17 prints from the collection.
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind | Castle in the Sky | My neighbor Totoro
Kiki’s Delivery Service | Porco Rosso | Princess Mononoke
Spirited Away | Howl’s Moving Castle | Ponyo
It all begins with (in my case) a terrible sketch of my next project.
From that sketch, I take to my tablet and begin to form small ideas, color stories, design elements which eventually coalesce into the final product as you will see in the gallery below.
The inspiration for these pieces were stained glass art (for style), illuminated manuscripts (for layout), and of course the subject matter is inspired by the films of Hayao Miyazaki and the animated film studio; Studio Ghibli.

Silent Running is a classic science fiction movie from the ’70s, chronicling the voyage of the final forest in a floating space station. Set up as a cautionary tale for a future where global pollution has run amok, the movie was an inspired piece of speculative fiction and thus is presented in a similar stark manor through this poster. This 11×17 prints has fine detailed textures as well as intense asymmetry and dynamic movement throughout.
