THE FOREST SPIRIT
Tribute fan art to Princess Mononoke. Companion piece to The Princess.
THE DEER GOD
This piece features the Deer God as he appeared in the Studio Ghibli classic, Princess Mononoke. The illustration captures a moment after the movie’s ending, where the Spirit of the Forest makes a glorious return in his Deer God form to resume his role in protecting the Cedar Forest and those who reside in it. His presence is signified by the appearance of deer and eerily cute forest spirits, known as Kodama.
