Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: David Bull's proposal is the most sincere and earnest request for what I consider a rescue mission of art. As an artist, I believe that the preservation of art to be of equal importance as national sovereignty.

Please consider this request from David Bull, not as a request for money, nor a move to distort the beauty of Ghibli art/characters; but a plea to conserve and restore something of great beauty and unmeasurable value; artistic self expression.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: David Bull and the Mokuhankan put a lot of heart into their work, and do plenty of research to respect the original source. This is a fantastic way to continue the struggling Ukiyo-e business. I do hope you'll say yes!!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Having your artwork done in a traditional Japanese way is the only way to enjoy it outside of the films. This would bring so much joy to so many.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Especially for adult fans of Ghibli (like me), this is a valuable and worthy way of keeping the Ghibli characters around you at home or even the office.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why:

Owning a hand carved and printed image is a memorial to designers, carvers, printers and all those countless un-named skilled individuals who have made the beautiful man-made wonders of history. The people who create these images, like all craftsmen are artists in the service of their religion, their master, their tribe, their tradition.

When this product of love and passion is paired with works from Ghibli you not only have a somewhat of a sacred or luxury object you also have a tangible reminder of something you love or have a treasured memory of; be this Totoro waiting in the rain or Haku being chased by paper cranes.

Ghibli prints could truly be a treasured possession.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Both Ghibli and Ukiyoe present prominent Japanese culture. Ghibli presenting ‘modern’ aspects in which children nowadays spent lots of hours watching their works and Ukiyoe presenting ‘traditional’ aspects. Having a great piece of Ghibli artwork in Ukiyoe prints will give me great pleasure of having something that culminates both aspects.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: I have been a fan of Studio Ghibli's work since I was a child. I am new to David Bull's work but from what I have seen of his craftsmanship this proposal is an incredible idea and I would love to see it to fruition.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: As fans grow worldwide it is important to understand when a company stops being just a company and becomes a part of a culture and is an active culture communicator ambassador. as Japan has moved through time I have been awed by the way the old and the new combined and became a beautiful example to the rest of the world. David's work is a living example on how much Japan has opened its arms to the rest of the world he is a living proof of combining the old with the new and how we can maintain traditions alive. It would be an honor to have Ghibli's beautiful art with Japan's traditional art making style or visiting your museum in Mitaka and seeing this beautiful work. Knowing I helped both ghibli and Mr Davids vision of keeping a cultural part of Japan alive and knowing an ambassador of culture is very much an example to follow.

Ghibli look at the business side of this it makes sense! Say Yes!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: To have these prints available to us would be a beautiful gift. I personally would purchase them, as would many of my colleagues. And think, these prints would be in display in people's homes, business, etc. Surely this can only improve your business and enlarge your fan base. It is a win-win situation for you Studio Ghibli! Please say "yes."

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: ghibli was my fist introduction to the beauty of Japan. Mononoke...Nausica...Totoro....Chihiro ...Sophie and Howl...these names are dear to my heart and were a part of my introduction to cultures beyond my own. Through them I have been lead to the beauty of kimono, sashiko, and more recently traditional wood block prints such as those created by David. I would honor a piece of Ghibli spirit combined with traditional Japanese crafsmanship in my home. It would be a memory of my past...the stories I am sharing with my children...and a beautiful cultural tradition at the same time. Please say "Yes"
