I just found out about this show. What a great opportunity for a great cause indeed. Beautiful piece my friend. Great detail. Love the pattern on the grass.

Thanks Guys,

It was a pleasure just to be given an excuse to use real paint again for a change and to pay hommage to a masterpiece that awed and inspired so many of us.

Manu, I hope for the pleasure to meet you on this occasion in September.

Cheers.

Wow!

Etienne, Jesse, Robert, Edwin,
Thanks.

Hi Ben.
Yes I did, and in this one too,but the original digital file had been sent so the version in the book will have the bright eyes.

Hi Bobby,
Some sketches coming up next.

Cheers.

Hi Luc,

A lovely piece of work! It's good to have a bit of Miyazaki spirit in ones veins!


I've included this piece in a short blog post publicising the event, if that's OK with you. ^-^

Luc Desmarchelier said...

Hi Mike,
Include away and if you going to put something in your veins, you could do worse than that.
Cheers.

Pablo,Celso,
Thank you very much.

Clio,
Sorry I missed you at the auction, I was trying to buy your beautiful watercolor, but I think I got outbid.
All the best and thanks for stopping by.

Cheers.
