I came across this piece I created a few years back to accompany a show of art and design from Pixar Studios that was being displayed at the Studio Ghibli Museum in Tokyo. The two companies have a very close bond and this piece was created to thank them for their dedication to Pixar and animation. If you ever have a chance to visit Tokyo I highly recommend visiting the Studio Ghibli Museum. There you can see the evolution of Totoro, Nausicaa, Porco Rosso, and so on. The museum is truly magical and houses one of the most amazing zoetropes you have ever seen.

This is soooo rad! Man, what an honor it must be to say your work was displayed at the Ghibli Museum.

Thanks for the compliments. It was an absolute honor to create something for a wonderful company and museum.

I was curious about the company you work for in Seattle. Can you tell me more about what you guys do? I am originally from Tacoma and have always wanted to return the beautiful northwest but I didn't really know where to start. Maybe we can chat over e-mail.

You're the SUPERSTAR.

But thanks for allowing me to orbit around your awesomeness for awhile.

That was supposed to be a compliment, but it's coming off kind of strange.

Benjamin Daphnie albercrombie butcher,

Your work is amazing, Studio Ghibli and Pixar rocks.
I was going to buy your Disney parks piece but i was short a nickle, you did a great jobs.

Melissa is a fan of your work now that she has seen the piece face to face, she loves the texture added by your paper piecing style.

This is a really beautiful piece. I did a lot of collages back in college and I know that its hard to keep it all together. I also know that if you use the wrong image or type of paper the whole "look" falls apart and appears messy - great work!
