The Ultimate Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind Tribute (ink your favorite shit)
The picture itself was actually a watercolor print Miyazaki did for a calendar that showcased the manga back in the 80's, which later received a full content publishing in his Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind: Watercolor Impressions book, a collection of concept sketches, promotional art, and animation cells for both the manga and film adaptation, respectively. It's a lovely hardcover book with an abundance of rarely seen photos and character designs, although Hayao Miyazaki's comments on his own work are often self-deprecating and somewhat un-fulfilled, but such a thing is only a minor deterrent to an otherwise exceptional collection that showcases Hayao Miyazaki's masterful storytelling and spectacular art of the world of Nausicaä. If anything, this is just a brief memo to an immeasurable love letter; one that I shall finish another day-or, when I get my damned tattoo colored in.
Oh, Snatcher is the best game ever.
