The project I have been working on and the studio I have been working at for the past 8 months has finally been announced! The animated feature directed by 細田守/Mamoru Hosoda ('Summer Wars', 'The Girl Who Leapt Through Time') is called 'おおかみこどもの雨と雪/Ookamikodomo no Ame to Yuki' directly translated 'Wolf Children; Rain and Snow', but there is no official english title yet. The film is being made at Studio Chizu, Mamoru Hosoda's new studio. The film will be released in Japan July 2012!
I know that it's very early... I was lucky enough to be asked again from my friend/Colleague at MadHouse, to contribute an illustration to his book, which will be available to buy at this years winter Comic Market (Comiket). As this years theme was Nengajo (a Japanese, seasons greatings card), I thought I'd share it here too. A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all, and thank you thank you to everybody who took their time to look at this blog.
