Before we share the re-make, let's look back to the first making of our Totoro...
To begin, William developed an original illustration of the animated character. He did this at the computer, and when his design was completed we set up a projector, so we could trace the image on 3/4" plywood.
Next, with Totoro's outline sketched on the wood, William cut out the shape with a jigsaw, right down to those six whiskers.
Gray, black, and white... time for the paint. While William finished this wood spirit, Alex began work on adding some smaller spirits to the party.
