30DC: Day 29: A Place You Want to Go

Here is the penultimate post for the 30 day challenge... Also going up today to make up for my lack of a post yesterday and so I finish on time.

If someone said, you can only travel to one more place in the world for the rest of your life, where would it be, this is how I answered this question. I would want to go to the Ghibli Museum. That of course would mean going to Japan, which is something I hope to do before I die.

Not sure why that their movies resonate so strongly with me...I have never been big into the Disney fairytale world, even as a child, but the Miyazaki universe is so fascinating. Anyway. That's where I want to go. No idea what the actual museum building looks like so I decided to try to draw myself as if I were a character in that universe. I thought it might be cool to also neatly wrap this up with a nod to day 1. Pretty fun too.

Just for the curious, I looked at a lot of the heroines from his movies. Think I identify most with Haru from the Cat Returns and Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle. Neither has much going for them and are pretty ordinary until something messes up their life (ultimately for the better). I made my outfit be the same as Haru's school uniform.
