I love laputa


So I've always been mildly obsessed with Studio Ghibli (I think that's how you spell it), ever since a friend took me to see Princess Mononoke in the theater back in New York. And then of course I kept renting everything I could get my hands on. One that I went mild for in the beginning was Laputa, "Castle in the Sky". I dunno, something about the animation was a little too manga for me at the time, I guess. But as the years have progressed, I've just fallen more and more in love with it. Who knows, maybe it's related to my ever progressing love of Steampunk.... improbable airships, blimps, and steam power? Count me in.


Anyway, I finally broke down and bought it the other day... and since I'm still playing with markers, I sort of did an homage. The picture's crap, but I know that if I don't just post it my procrastination will kick in, and then it will never get done..... so hopefully you like it.
