My Neighbor Totoro (or Tonari no Totoro) is a wonderful Japanese animated film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki in 1988. Of course, most of the English speaking world is more familiar with the Disney version from 2006. Either way it is a beautiful film about two sisters and their adventures with the strange creatures they befriend. Totoro is so cute that I could resist making a variety of designs for different occasions inspired by the characters.
