Totoro Forest Project


There has been a secret project going on for the last while called the TOTORO FOREST PROJECT which I an very happy to be part of and we are now allowed to share the info with you. This is an unbelievable collection of over 200 international artists joining together the help spread the word in an effort to preserve Sayama Forest, also known as Totoro Forest. Hayao Miyazaki used this forest as an inspiration for "Totoro".

Above is my contribution to the project. How does this work? Well there will be an auction held at Pixar on the 6th of Sept 2008, and the best thing is that ALL of the proceeds will be donated to the Totoro Forest Foundation. Fantastic. There will also be a book produced collecting all the artwork involved in the project. Please help in saving this very special place.

This amazing project was spearheaded by Dice Tsutsumi, Enrico Casarosa, and Ronnie del Carmen. You'll be hearing a lot about this project over the next while. The artwork is spectacular and you can see it in the gallery section of the TOTORO FOREST PROJECT. It should be an incredible auction. Please help spread the word about this.

Fantastic! Your piece says so much, with such beautiful subtlety. And what a worthy cause to be helping. Thanks for the heads-up on the Totoro Forest Project book, as well. I'll keep my eyes open for it. See you in San Diego! :)
