Hayao Miyazaki HD/HP

This swap is all about the art of Hayao Miyazaki! Hayao Miyazaki is a film director and animator of several of my favorite movies: Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, Ponyo, the Secret World of Arrietty, or any of his (or Studio Ghibli's) films. To me his movies are more than just children’s movies – they are works of art. So this swap is for all of you who also find his work inspiring!


--card must be ORIGINAL!!! Please hand draw or hand paint your cards.
--Remember the background! It should be completed too.
--Make sure all edges are glued down.
--NO bulky embellishments (keep your cards flat!). It should fit easily in a trading card sleeve.
--Make your cards sturdy. If they are flimsier than an index card, it will be returned.
-- Put user name on the back of your cards!!!!!!!
--Protect your ATCs in sleeves or plastic baggies.
--Communicate if you must withdraw. It's no big deal - just let me know! I don't bother with neutral itraders even if you don't communicate...but please let me know just to be polite.
--Extra cards as host gifts are always, always appreciated, but never required!

Oh, Hayao Miyazaki! What a great swap theme idea! My Neighbor Totoro is my favorite movie! Unfortunately, I can't handdraw/handpaint realism very well, so won't be participating in this swap :(

BUT, if those of you that are participating make extra cards of Totoro or Catbus (I know people often make extras of their swap theme to trade individually), I would love to trade with you! PM me if you are interested.

02-25-2012, 02:20 PM
I don't know in the US but Arrietty was in theaters a year ago, at the moment they're playing "From up on the Poppy Hill" great movie too but as it's only written by Hayao (directed by Goro) I didn't draw it.

02-27-2012, 10:38 PM
Welcome Claudzie! Mike, your cards arrived safe and sound today! And Arrietty just came out over here. Hopefully Poppy Hill will reach us someday :)

ArtDuJunque The first one is Setsuko from Grave of the Fireflies, and the second one is Gina from Porco Rosso. :)

04-02-2012, 11:22 AM
Those are fabulous!

04-03-2012, 07:34 PM
Looks like I need to watch more Miyazaki movies:-( I haven't seen either of those, at least I don't think so.

04-03-2012, 09:36 PM
Me either but know I wanna :wink:

Ive got 3 done

04-03-2012, 10:58 PM
ArtDuJunque and thatgeekyartgirl They were done during the late 80's to early 90's, but I really think they're cute and touching ones. Less magical than movies like Totoro and Spirited Away, but I think with more real emotion. :)

04-04-2012, 10:57 PM
Just watched my neighborhood totoro with thue hubby :D loved it <3

04-08-2012, 07:13 PM

No problem! Thanks for letting me know!

04-11-2012, 04:09 PM
Here's all my cards! I'm sending them out today. :) I added an extra stamp for the host, just in case you need it.

Ashitaka, Kiki, Catbus, and the robot from Laputa: Castle in the Sky.

04-12-2012, 12:07 AM
Hi, I am not familiar with this theme. Is it the same as Kodomo Manga drawings? Like the Little Red Riding Hood and their Snow White and Dragon warriors?

04-14-2012, 12:31 AM
I'm sorry I have to drop. :(

04-16-2012, 05:39 PM
No problem, PandaCookie! Thanks for letting me know!

Bruised, those are awesome!

Hayao Miyazaki is a Japanese director/animator who has a number of amazing movies. This swap is open to anything inspired by his artwork or any of his movies.

Anyone else need my address?

04-23-2012, 02:51 PM
The deadline is coming up soon :)

04-23-2012, 10:55 PM
AH deadline is to close, i don't have anything prepared, school sucked up all my time. very sorry. i hope to play next time!

04-24-2012, 08:27 PM
Ethereal Sheep, I'm afraid I have to drop. I attempted cards a few times and nothing worked for me. I love this theme, but it just wasn't working for me. I'd rather not send in sub-par work, so please remove me from the swap.


04-26-2012, 01:50 PM
No problem! Thanks for letting me know!

Some more cards came in - the list is now up to date and I'm caught up on leaving iTrader. Let me know if I missed you or something!

04-27-2012, 02:21 PM
I'm sorry I wanted to play in this but my upcoming test is taking too much of my time. I'm going to have to withdraw.

04-27-2012, 02:26 PM
I totally understand. I'm graduating vet school this year so I know how much exams can take up your time :) Good luck!
