Let the wind carry these wings to you by may-cat Let the wind carry these wings to you by may-cat
Oh my gosh. Now that I'm done, I don't even know what to say.

Ghibli's movies, and Miyazaki's specifically, have had a deep impact on me throughout my life, however cheesy it may sound. From when I would watch Totoro over and over and over again as a kid, to when I resonated so deeply with Chihiro watching Spirited Away for the first time as a middle schooler, to when I watched Ponyo in high school and was transported back to the wonder of childhood... each movie holds a piece of my heart and gives me inspiration.

I was so excited for The Wind Rises, and then I find out that dA's holding an official contest! So, despite a midterm on Tuesday, I was determined to make something as a tribute, both for this movie and for Ghibli and Miyazaki's legacy. I've actually made lots of Ghibli fanart before (mostly sketches) but never posted any because they never seemed to do the characters/movies justice, hahaha. 

Anyways, to cut my long rambling short, this is my love letter to Ghibli, Miyazaki, and The Wind Rises (which I hopefully will be seeing Saturday!).

My eyes are twitching; I'm going to go catch up on all that sleep I lost now...
