A few months ago I had an email from DICE TSUTSUMI at Pixar asking me if I would contribute a picture to the TOTORO FOREST PROJECT. Dice said that SAYAMA forest is in danger of being buried under suburban development and we can't have that if we can help it. There are more than enough suburbs and there is only one Totoro Forest. The TOTORO FOREST PROJECT aims to save these tranquil woods for posterity. Dice has asked hundreds of artists who work in the animation business - you-all know who you are - to contribute paintings, drawings and sculptures to the fund-raising gig. You can read more about it here and see the stuff that's been done.
