I made a Totoro nursery for my son. He was born in Nov. 2012 and I rushed to paint it all before he showed up. I sketched on the wall, then painted the Totoros (grey, white, and blue-ish grey.) I free handed the soot sprites. The first thing I made for his room was the felt/yarn garland. I found the yarn in a discarded clearance area at my local Michael's and instantly knew that it would look like the spiderwebs you see at the into of the movie. I knew it had to be Totoro for little Julien.





I have more of the pictures posted to my user gallery here. I didn't want to make it too image heavy.





thanks. Smiley
