Fans of Japanese animation will be delighted to catch Nagoya City Board of Education’s latest video upload. The short video clip encourages those stuck at home to take a stab at drawing one of Studio Ghibli’s most iconic characters.
Joined by Toshio Suzuki of Studio Ghibli, Totoro’s lovely and maedium-sized friend from My Neighbor Totoro, Chu-Totoro (Zuku), is shown drawn by hand. Using a calligraphy brush, Suzuki walks us through the different steps including the most important detail in making the character come alive: appropriate spacing in the eyes. Watch the video above to see the legendary anime producer in action.
