Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: It's a fantastic idea! The timeless work if Studio Ghibli would be well represented in the timeless art of wood block printing. These prints will last hundreds of years, just like the work of Ghibli will live on. Thus is the perfect medium to preserve their legacy.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: They will show the magic of Ghibli to more people. David has and will stay faithful to the Ghibli aesthetic.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why:I have been a fan of David Bull's work for quite some time now. Each of his prints are of quality and reflect utmost expertise. Up until recently, I was merely a fan of David's work. That was before I had the pleasure of meeting the man himself. David Bull is a man of integrity, with an unrelenting respect for the culture and history behind Japanese woodblock prints. To agree to a project with David Bull is to ensure that Ghibli's image will be presented with similar respect and integrity. I hope to see future Ghibli prints so that I may be transported back in time when I look upon the artwork. Knowing that the print was created by a team of carver/printers dedicated to preserving the culture of Japanese woodblock prints, I will be reminded of the artistic history of Japan when I look upon the artwork. It will also bring me back to days of my childhood, when My Neighbor Totoro would play repeatedly on the VCR, when I had the dialogue of the Kiki's Delivery Service memorized.Please say 'Yes' to this project, Ghibli, so that your fans around the world can display their love for your animations through a Japanese woodblock print created by respectable master printmaker David Bull!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Woodblock prints are an amazing way to recreate the wonderful scenes from Ghibli's most prominent movies. I believe the prints will be true to the standards Ghibli has set for their artwork and the artist truly cares for original source material.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Woodblock printing is a beautiful Japanese tradition that brings images to life in a unique way. The feel of true woodbock prints is unlike any other art form, and Mokuhankan produces truly quality pieces. Please, let your beautiful films be represented in this beautiful, traditional style. They're a perfect match.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: on my recent trip to Japan I was able to visit the Ghibli Museum. It was such a great place to visit and to experience the art of the studio in a different way. I have also had the experience of woodblock prints created by David Bull and he is seeking to revive (and succeeding) the traditional art of Japanese woodblock prints to a new generation. In a world where true art had given way to mass production, this concept would introduce fans of Studio Ghibli to a whole new form of art and a new way to appreciate their work. I would love to see this happen.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Not only do Mokuhankan produce beautiful work made with the heart and the soul, they also keep the tradition of woodblock alive. Their woodblocks are treasured by many who collect them.Studio Ghibli has touched the hearts and souls of people all over the world with beautiful stories that stay with the audience forever.What better union could there be but Ghibli reproduced as woodblocks by Mokuhankan?

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: We love your films, and seeing the beautiful art translated to the ukiyo-e style would do the art justice that modern more common printing cannot match.

Spirited Away is my favorite movie of all time - the story, the characters, the music, but especially the art. It's a world so distinctive, beautiful - the settings sparkle with life, so vivid and imaginative. I believe Dave can capture this essence in the format of woodblock prints. Please, Studio Ghibli, give him a chance - and say yes!

Ghibli, Dave is the most passionate artist I have ever met, and I can say for sure that your project will be in good hands should you allow him to create great works of art for you.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Dave is a professional, and is fully dedicated to his craft, and will treat Miyazaki-san's revered works with the utmost care, love and respect they deserve. Having seen and bought a few of his prints, I know that he'll create something truly wonderful and breathtaking if only he's given permission to do so; seriously, just trying to imagine it is giving me goosebumps!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Two little girls who introduced me to their beloved Studio Ghibli films and who love David Bull's woodblock prints will be as thrilled to receive such a gift as I, an old woman, will be happy to please them with it. You have given so much delight to so many with your wonderful work, won't you please give this approval to Mokuhankan and allow us to have this additional joy.

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

The works of Studio Ghibli are for more than simply beautiful and charming, as they appear on the surface. The films, especially My Neighbor Totoro, are a heartfelt journey into another world for myself and many others. The movies evoke such a feeling of warmth and nostalgia that owning a piece of that experience is a must.

However, this desire cannot be satisfied with a glossy, plastic bento nor a garishly proportioned plush (I know, I have tried). These prints would be the first merchandise to finally embody both the beloved images as well as the bittersweet longing for the past evoked by the films.

Please reconsider your refusal. The opportunity to own these prints would be greatly appreciated and deeply loved by countless fans, including myself.

Thank you.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: The art of Studio Ghilbli is so beautiful; it would pair beautifully in the woodblock art form.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: I grew up watching all of your films, and I love every single one of them. Your name is synonymous with Japan for me and thousands of other fans all around the world.

The project that Mr. Bull is suggesting would not only bring a special type of Studio Ghibli memorabilia into the homes of your fans, but it would tie it in to the wonderful history of Japan itself. Studio Ghibli films are very reminiscent of the Ukiyo-e movement and should be considered the very same.

Please consider his proposal. It's too special to let this pass by.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: The world of Ghibli is too beautiful not to share! Mokuhankan are a very talented studio, and your worlds will be beautifully rendered!

Ghibli, won't say 'yes'. Here's why: As sorry I am for you, but if Ghibli WANTS a special project for their movies, they can make it themselves. After all, you still more or less just want to make money with your work (of course, plus make fans happy etc.). But it's Ghibli's Job to do that for their fans.

There' a Ghibli Museum, there's Ghibli Fanstuff, and thats okay. They don't need the help of any big company (like Disney) and I find that GOOD. Other companys just grow the hell shit out of themselves (like google etc.) and eat up any company they want. Please just accept that Ghibli doesn't want any help, and concentrate on other Projects. Sorry.

[Dave's reponse: Thank you for your comments; I fully understand that the people who call the shots at the Ghibli Studios may not want me to proceed with such a project. The reason I am still trying to push forward is that I believe they simply haven't had a chance to make a reasoned decision - they have no idea how beautiful such woodblock prints can be. If - once I have had a face-to-face meeting with some of these people and have had a chance to present my case - if then, they still say 'no', then I will fold my tent and close this up ...]
