Miyazaki Paintings

It’s a Sunday! That means I don’t have to show you nail art today. I have a different type of art…actual painting! While I prefer tiny canvases (aka nails) I do occasionally (…once a year) do real art. On my anniversary. With my boyfriend. This year, our theme was Miyazaki!


I went ahead and painted Haku, the river spirit dragon from Spirited Away. I have to say, I am pretty darn proud of myself! I don’t usually paint large things, and when I do they tend to be abstract.


The boyfriend picked a simpler but more recognizable set of characters…Totoro and the Cat Bus from My Neighbor Totoro! I had to help him touch up some of the lines, but he did a REALLY good job! And for the first time, did not get super-crazy-frustrated midway through painting and threaten to stop :-p


Hope you enjoyed! Tomorrow it’s back to nail art 🙂

  1. So freakin cool! My boyfriend is a painter but the only thing i paint is nails. I would be an epic fail compared to him

  2. Awesome! The Haku one looks great. Sprited Away is one of my all-time favorite movies.

    • yay! everyone who visits the apartment always comments on the totoro one because it is more recognizable. Spirited Away is fantastic (if really rather trippy)
