The assignment I was given was to choose an artist and design a catalogue featuring their work.  I decided to go with one of my favourite animators, Hayao Miyazaki, one of the founders of Studio Ghibli. My first step was to begin my research into his films and choose 3 of them to focus on for the catalogue. I chose to work with My Neighbour Totoro, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away.  Each section featured a summary, characters and the setting from each film. I illustrated iconic side characters for each animation to add to the narrative of the book. Their purpose was to accompany the reader throughout the book and add to the magical element that Miyazaki’s work delivered.
