The classic animated worlds of Studio Ghibli brought vividly to (still) life in a series of paintings by the artist lixiaoyaoii. I’ve been hooked on Studio Ghibli movies since first watching My Neighbour Totoro many years ago and travelling to the Cornerhouse in Manchester to catch new releases.
I can’t resist movie seasons featuring the classic Ghibli works like Porco Rosso, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Whisper Of The Heart and Nausicaä to the comparatively more recent movies like Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and From Up On Poppy Hill. These paintings have inspired to re-watch them all and acquire the most recent releases that have passed me by. Summer blockbusters come and go, these animated classics will remain forever young.
You can find more by lixiaoyaoii on Pixiv but the sign-up process is painful, so be warned.
