Studio Ghibli's Limited Edition Cel Art

Replicas of art drawn by Hayao Miyazaki

Team Ghiblink was informed in May 1999 that Ms. Ruby Persson of New York, who had hosted an art show featuring cels of Studio Ghibli's work in 1996, has struck an exclusive deal to market limited numbers of replicas of Studio Ghibli cels. What follows is information provided by Ms. Persson about the replicas.

Studio Ghibli has created a production quality cel based on the original production art using a silk-screenprinting process of color reproduction, some of the original artwork was done entirely by Hayao Miyazaki himself. The backgrounds were reproduced by using the highest quality offset printing process.
My Neighbor Totoro

The main characters for this edition were drawn by the film's director Hayao Miyazaki. Mr. Miyazaki also supervised the creation of the original artwork, based on the film which was released on April 16, 1988. It was voted Japan's Best Picture of the year. The artwork was created for the Studio Ghibli Calendar 1997.
Kiki's Delivery Service

The creation for this image was supervised by the film's director Hayao Miyazaki. Studio Ghibli Artists have carefully translated an image based on the film into a production quality cel. The film was released on July 29, 1989. It was Japan's #1 box office hit of the year. The artwork was created for the Studio Ghibli Calendar 1996.
Princess Mononoke

The ORIGINAL PRODUCTION CELS AND BACKGROUNDS from "PRINCESS MONONOKE" were used to create this Limited Edition Cel. There are two images - one of Ashitaka about to shoot an arrow while riding Yakkul, and one of San with her wolf brothers. The first has a total of 42 different colors and the second has 35, which means that Studio Ghibli had to create that many different screens to reproduce the ORIGINAL ARTWORK (the average Disney Ltd. Ed. cel has only 15 or 20 colors). The film was released on July 1997. It was Japan's #1 box office hit of all time until the American film "TITANIC" reached Japan.
