Poppy Hill (Non-Freelance Friday)

This week I’m afraid Freelance Friday’s had to take a break, due to this week being entirely insane. In the meantime, relating well to our earlier Hunting Jobs Online post, check out Don’t Work for Free on the excellent Work Made for Hire blog!

In the meantime, here’s a little fanart sketch. Earlier this week I finally got to see Ghibli’s From Up on Poppy Hill!

SThompson-PoppyHillAfter his rocky start with Earthsea, Goro Miyazaki’s definitely found his feet. I know some responses have been a little ambivalent, but I thought it was heavenly. Every frame was stunning, pacing was lovely, and even the kind of melodramatic plot elements were handled in a down-to-earth manner. Gorgeous, gorgeous stuff!

(I might start doing more posts like this – with little fanart sketches of things I love/recommend/find inspiring, and a little paragraph on why. It’s good to shout about the things we think are great! 🙂
