Finally we can talk about this!
the Totoro Forest Project
I'm honored to be a part of this effort. My friend Dice Tsutsumi helped gather 200 artists to create original work to make this happen. The theme was centered around a protector of nature. It's a benefit to help preserve the Sayama forest, which is on the outskirts of Tokyo and being threatened by urban development. This place was Hayao Miyazaki's inspiration for his Totoro forest and he's been fighting for it for 10 years. There will be an auction and a book of the artwork. All proceeds will go to help save this vanishing forest.
Go check out the gallery on the site. Not all the work is up yet, but there's still more amazing work up there than you can stand!
