Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: by making an exception for these talented, creative and unique artists you actually reinforce your "no licensing" rule! You make a statement that you don't want Ghibli's works to be turned into garbage merchandise, but honored as true art.

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

These movie prints would look beautiful in Japanese woodblock print, they would exemplify what is at the core of all Miyazaki films: nature is wonderful!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: All of the films that you, as a studio, have resounded so deeply with children and adults alike for many years! This is a wonderful opportunity for these adoring fans to have a precious memento that will forever remind them of the love they have for your films. It would be so wonderful if you would say yes. Pretty please.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: I have been a fan of ghibli since i was a child. I really love japan and its culture. I think that what mokuhankan workshop are doing is amazing. They are trying to save a piece of japanese culture. I really admire the woodblock prints and I am surely going to subscribe to it. I would love to see studio ghibli's art as an amazing woodblock. My house will be filled with a bit of japanese culture and art. So please Ghibli, say yes!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: I remember in 2000 when Mononoke Hime was going to be released to the USA on DVD. They were not going to include a Japanese soundtrack with English subtitles. Through Nausicaa.net, we started a letter writing campaign to beg Ghibli to include a Japanese track on the DVD. They did finally decide to do so. Americans could hear this wonderful movie in the language of it's birth.

Here is another letter writing campaign. David Bull and Jed Henry have reverence for their subject matter. The woodcut is a unique medium that conveighs emotion and beauty, as do Ghibli animated movies. To combine these mediums would be a wonderful thing. Please reconsider? Your work would be translated into wonderful art, and there could be a possibility that your favorite charity could benefit.

Thanks, Cynthia L. Member Nausicaa.net email list.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! This team are the genuine article. Having seen what they produce, I can guarantee that with your images they would take iconic to a whole new level, if you give them permission to do so. As creators, I'd like to think that you appreciate other genuine creators, who are also actively preserving and promoting an art. Refusing Disney licensing rights? Yes, I can understand that. Refusing these guys? Hmmm, not so much! Don't disappoint us, please! Deirdre Morrison, Ireland

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Jed and David Bull make great prints and pieces of art that do the source material justice and could expand your brand to a wider audience or to the existing fanbase, but give them something to hold on to. It's obvious that the Ghibli brand is a very powerful and sacred brand, much more than Disney or Nintendo, but I strongly feel that this product would come out great, many people would want them, and even more would buy them. Please reconsider!

Studio Ghibli - Your movies have taught so many people all over the world through your whimsical tales to respect nature and tradition in a world where modern commercialism is quickly taking over. David Bull has sent his beautiful woodblock prints around the world too and is trying to teach people on a global scale to appreciate and revive a beautiful, yet dying art tradition from your homeland. Why not pair up together to send the world the beautiful messages given in your films while simultaneously supporting the preservation of a piece of your cultural history?

I have already purchased many prints from David Bull and Jed Henry and would LOVE to make more wall space available in my home to display some beautiful Ghibli prints! Please say yes!!

Allowing this artist access to the Ghibli character repertoire would be amazing and good. Not only would it be encouraging the the survival of the dying form of wood blocking, it also will provide homage to the worlds most favorite stories! <3

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: The woodblock prints being made by Mr. Bull embody many of the same themes your movies do; tradition, appreciation of nature, the supernatural, etc. Both Studio Ghibli and Mokuhankan could benefit greatly from a collaboration. I can't imagine anyone that would show more respect for the original works than Mr. Bull.

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

Dave is an experiencd craftsman, who will not tarnish the brand name. The artwork in toro toro and other films is stunning and could be perpetually ingrained in popular culture if some of the scenes were made into woodblock print.

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

Ukiyo-e is a style not well known in America, at least by name. The video game prints have left an impression on all my friends and coworkers and now they know the words "ukiyo-e."

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Tradiotional Japanese woodblock prints would be the perfect synergy for your films and visuals.

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

Studio Ghibli's works have been a window into Japan's cultural soul, as well as its past. I will forever be grateful to them for 耳をすませば, おもひでぽろぽろ and もののけ姫.

I think that woodblock prints of their gorgeous background designs would be a perfect fit.

Please say yes!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Ghibli's artwork is the most perfect and ideal source material for a series of woodblock prints I can possibly think of. It would be the most beautiful combination of traditional printing and modern animation from Japan that could only benefit both mediums. To say the least, the project would generate so much interest and support from buyer's around the world, including myself, that it would be overwhelming! Please take a look at the work coming from David Bull's incredible studio and his very talented craftspeople and trust that only they could make a series of gorgeous Ghibli woodblock prints a reality! Arigatou!
