Philosophy of Miyazaki Comic Page 1 by sapphiresky1410 Philosophy of Miyazaki Comic Page 1 by sapphiresky1410
Edit: Since this question has come up so much- no, these are not direct quotes from Miyazaki- I read, listened to, and and watched many, many interviews of Miyazaki, and the words in my comic are paraphrases/translations/simplified summaries of all of the notes that I took on the things that he said during the interviews. Due to the constraints of the assignment, I was challenged to find a way to word and present his whole philosophy in five short pages. I took careful, and much-considered artistic liberties when creating the narrative of this comic, and all decisions were made based upon the importance of maintaining cohesiveness between statements, so that Miyazaki's message and philosophy would be well-translated, and clearly understood through my comic.

--------------

For my visual narratives class we had to make a five page comic that told the story/a story of a famous person's life. I chose to do Hayao Miyazaki, and instead of doing a direct sroty about him, I chose to do a telling oh his philosophy about life- beliefs that he has gathered through his life and now incorporates into his movies.

The whole comic was done using ink- no pens, just nibs and brush, and all shaded was done with ink washes.

I had never used ink (besides micron pens) until now, so it was a bit daunting, but it turned out to be pretty fun!

Miyazaki's concept of good and evil is very accurate to what I believe. Beings have the ability to do good and bad, but they can't be classified as simple as black and white. The presentation of these comics are truly amazing and I hope you continue working ^^

You did a better job with the ink wash than I did my first time. Of course I suck at painting so that was a factor.
