Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Reproducing these prints would be a great way to preserve Japanese culture for us all to appreciate in time to come. Studio Ghibli's work is perhaps the most iconic of anime, and expressing it through woodblock printing is the ultimate way to honor both art forms.

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

Because it'll be the best mix between two of the greatest japan's art : ukio-e wood curving and animated movies. the soft an precious soul of these two art will create a fabulous render. What is better than an actual living master piece transcended by an ancient (still living) and traditional art form ? I'll love to see theses characters having a new life made of wood. So please Ghibli, SAY YES ! イエスと言ってください

Ukiyoe Heroes delivers beautiful art every month, I would love to see my favorite Ghibli moments done by their hand!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: JUST DO IT. I've seen plenty of cheap, mass-produced Ghibli merchandise. This is a product that makes a lot of sense, and the collaboration seems like a no-brainer.

Why does this not already exist? Take my money, please!

This can only be a win-win for everyone involved. I know Studio Ghibli is uber-protective of their licensing, but there comes a time when the perfect partner arrives. That man is David Bull. I am hooked on his passion and dedication to craft that comes through in each and every one of his video documentaries on Youtube. His careful handling of Hokusai's The Great Wave print was a monumental demonstration of his mastery. Since then, the resume has only continued to improve. And with a fine stable of young, enthusiastic artisans at the ready, the time is now!

I yearn to see the artwork of Ghibli given such detailed attention and presented in such a classy art form. Say yes, Ghibli. Just say yes already!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: their art is beautiful and stunning. all the effort put into each handcrafted piece is a lost art. each print captures the beauty of the culture while keeping the characters true to form.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Mr. Bull’s intention with this Project is, in his own words, inmortalize some of the most famous scenes and characters that were born in Ghibli Studios. But we can also find some more deeply important meanings to his objetives. To get to them we must observe and try to understand it as a contemporary art work project, a combination of an old traditional technique, as the woodblock printing is, and a selection of images that were created and executed using modern technologies, expossed by the mass media, destinated to a crowdy public that does’nt need to know anything about arts to be able to comprehend and enjoy them. This kind of appropiations made by the inclution of foreign elements into the art’s world is one of the most selected resources for those artists who work in the cause of bringing arts and common people’s life together. We consider David Bull’s work as a sublime expression of the technique, and conceptually full of artistic scense. Is because of this two things together that every project he starts transforms into trascendential pieces of art. From Argentina, a country in the other side of the globe, we add to this petition: Ghibli say yes, please!

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: To make this beautiful tradition live and to thank Dave Bull for a lifetime of effort and art!

This project is about the high culture techniques of Japan's past meeting the modern images and characters that have come to illustrate the country's creativity. To have the images from Studio Ghibli take a new life from this fine art technique of Japanese wood block printing would be a boon for all of the parties involved. As a fan of Studio Ghibli's creations, and an artist with deep respect for David Bull and his associates, I and my students at the Green School Bali are in full support of this project!

The people over at Mokuhankan are passionate about traditional Japanese printmaking. They work hard and are quite skilled, as can be seen in their prints, as well as Mr. Bulls videos on YouTube. Your approval of Ghibli prints would mean a lot to both fans of your fantastic movies, and to those with interest in the art of printmaking. I personally, a Ghibli-enthusiast with a newfound interest for Japanese printmaking, sincerely hope you come to an agreement with Mokuhankan; if not for the artists, their fans or your fans, then for the sake of breathing new life into a craft with a great heritage.

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: I've grown up watching Studio Ghibli's work and i'll love to buy some artwork to share with my family

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

- We love Ghibli characters! My kids grew with them, they are like part of the family... - I love Japanese art, and particulary ukiyo-e. I'm trying myself to learn mokuhanga. - But this art is less and less popular, in these days of digital art, and few real sensei remain this days. -David Bull is one of these, able to work on very classical stuff (greatWave of Kanagawa) and more modern creation with mangakas. - So I really think that this project would be a perfect match, and I would really be happy to be able to offer these prints to friends, family... and keep some for me of course! Please, say YES! Fred, Paris, France

Ghibli, say 'yes' please! Here's why: Studio Ghibli has become a Japanese icon in the west and to these images represented in David Bull's work just seems proper. He is using only traditional Japanese techniques to produce the wonderful prints and at the same time keeping the flame of a cherished craft alive. He has already successfully shown a market for prints of this type and the iconic and beloved characters from Ghibli seems a perfect match of old craft and modern imagery. That concept in itself is so much of what Japan's greatness is about. The melding and transforming new and old into something special, something uniquely Japanese. I hope to see this collaboration come to fruition very soon. Thank you for your time. Best regards, Marcus Chambers
