"My Neighbor Totoro" watercolor

"I also believe that you met the King of the Forest, Mei, and meeting him is a sign of good luck. But that's no guarantee that you'll see him all the time." ~My Neighbor Totoro

I got a commission this week to illustrate Totoro, soo much fun! I got to rewatch the movie for research and then watch it some more while I was painting. Best job ever :}

"Whispers in the Wind" witchy watercolor

A favorite movie of mine growing up was "Hocus Pocus". I remember trying to recreate scenes with my friends, using an old barbecue pit that was left in the corner of the playground as a cauldron. It was one of the many movies that gave my imagination what it was craving and encouraged me to play.
So, here's my little tribute to magic!

Dame Eyola: The Neverending Story

I've been working on concept art for my "Neverending Story" project based off the book written by Michael Ende. I present to you, Dame Eyola! 
Towards the end of the book, Bastian has to go through some trials to get his memories back. He ends up at the House of Change and meets Dame Eyola. She is an inviting, round and red-cheeked woman, as healthy-looking as an apple. At first Bastian thinks that she's wearing a dress of bright, flowered material but quickly learns that she IS leaves, flowers and fruits. At one point during their conversation she picks up a watering can and sprinkles herself with water. It all grows out of her as hair grows out of our heads. Dame Eyola is flowering and bearing fruit because she's happy to see Bastian, but if she were to be sad, she'd wither.
