Do you like Hayao Miyazaki? If you haven’t seen any of his animated movies, I strongly recommend that you do. Start with Academy Award winning Spirited Away, proceed to Howl’s Moving Castle and enjoy! Meanwhile here is a pattern based on a character from a 1988 film My Neighbor Totoro, forest spirit Totoro himself. As it often happens, I hope to make more Miyazaki-inspired petterns 🙂

Did you know? In 2013 a velvet worm species Eoperipatus totoro, recently discovered in Vietnam, was named after Totoro: “Following the request of Pavel V. Kvartalnov, Eduard A. Galoyan and Igor V. Palko, the species is named after the main character of the cartoon movie “My Neighbour Totoro” by Hayao Miyazaki (1988, studio Ghibli), who uses a many-legged animal as a vehicle, which according to the collectors resembles a velvet worm.” (Wikipedia)
