Replicas of art drawn by Hayao
Team Ghiblink was informed in May 1999 that Ms. Ruby Persson of New York,
who had hosted an art show featuring cels of Studio Ghibli's work in 1996,
has struck an exclusive deal to market limited numbers of
replicas of Studio Ghibli cels. What follows is information provided by
Ms. Persson about the replicas.
Studio Ghibli has created a production quality cel based on the original
production art using a silk-screenprinting process of color reproduction,
some of the original artwork was done entirely by Hayao Miyazaki himself.
The backgrounds were reproduced by using the highest quality offset
My Neighbor Totoro
The main characters for this edition were drawn by the film's director Hayao
Miyazaki. Mr. Miyazaki also supervised the creation of the original artwork,
based on the film which was released on April 16, 1988. It was voted Japan's
Best Picture of the year. The artwork was created for the Studio Ghibli
Kiki's Delivery Service
The creation for this image was supervised by the film's director Hayao
Miyazaki. Studio Ghibli Artists have carefully translated an image based on
the film into a production quality cel. The film was released on July 29,
1989. It was Japan's #1 box office hit of the year. The artwork was created
for the Studio Ghibli Calendar 1996.
The ORIGINAL PRODUCTION CELS AND BACKGROUNDS from "PRINCESS MONONOKE"
were used to create this Limited Edition Cel. There are two images -
one of Ashitaka about to shoot an arrow while riding Yakkul, and one
of San with her wolf brothers. The first has a total of 42 different
colors and the second has 35, which means that Studio Ghibli had to
create that many different screens to reproduce the ORIGINAL ARTWORK
(the average Disney Ltd. Ed. cel has only 15 or 20 colors). The film was
released on July 1997. It was Japan's #1 box office hit of all time
until the American film "TITANIC" reached Japan.
