Hayao Miyazaki / by john cheng

I was raised watching the wonderful works of Hayao Miyazaki. It saddens me to hear that he is retiring and won't be making any more brilliant and fantastic animated features. 

Upon realizing that Miyazaki is retired, I also stumbled across some of his concept art for the movie, Pippi Longstocking: Strongest Girl in the World, that was destined to never be made due to Studio Ghibli not being able to gain the rights from the author of the Pippi Longstocking series. Regardless, these images are beautiful!
