“Always believe in yourself. Do this and no matter where you are, you will have nothing to fear.” - Hayao Miyazaki
This latest piece is a tribute to the one and only Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli and featuring one of his masterpiece “My Neighbor Totoro”. I just thought it would be cool to make him in Pop! form, just like Stan Lee for Marvel. It was a treat working on this project, I also listened to Totoro’s soundtrack while working . I used the Funko Pop! ID4 David Levinson as my base figure for Miyazaki. All additional details were sculpted over. As for the Pop minis of Totoro, Chu & Chibi Totoro and Cat Bus, they are Nibariki minifigures with customized eyes to match Pop! trademark big concave eyes. Truly had fun with the photoshoot, it was nice see them all together having a great sunny day.
