I combined the Illustration Friday theme “impossibility,” with thoughts about Earth Day to create this illustration. One of my favorite movies is “My Neighbor Totoro” by Hayao Miyazaki. Miyazaki captures the beauty, innocence, and wonder of childhood. The movie is beautiful and I love the little and big Totoros, and especially the cat bus. My imagination never stops, so I see my drawings and creations everywhere, and gain inspiration from everything around me. The young man in the illustration is proclaiming the forest spirits do not exist, since they are most certainly an impossibility. To the contrary, I say that not only do they exist, but they are everywhere, we have only to stop and notice them. People often ask, if I really see my little creatures in my head and the world around me, and I answer, “yes, well certainly.” I more amazed that they do not see them. The world is full of wonderful things, just ask any child. In the movie Satsuki and Mei can see the Totoros, but none of the adults can. It is important to imagine and dream, life will keep you grounded on it’s own, so don’t worry about living in a fantasy world. The important thing is to bring the spark of creativity and wonder into your life everyday, and if you need any help, I’m sure a child will be happy to help you. Have a wonderful day. Imagine, dream, create, draw, laugh, and love.
