This is a sketch that I did for the Totoro Forest Project. Such an amazing group of artist working together for a great purpose. If you haven't checked out the art yet, you should.
I wasn't actually asked to contribute, but I felt compelled to give something to such a worthy cause. I sent the pic off to Dice Tsutsumi hoping that he could use it in some way or another. Sadly, they weren't accepting any more works of art ... late again Rawls!!! Its all good though. I told Dice that it was more of a gift and a token of my desire to help than anything.
