Ever since I was a child, I have been a big fan of both Japanese anime and American Disney.
This painting is inspired by a mash-up from both genres. Specifically, it is from my memories of Bambie and the Grave of the Fireflies. They were both cartoons about family and lost. It always made me sad watching both of these movies as a child, but this just proves how great the movies were in conveying and conspiring these emotions.
This painting is currently on display at Pizzeria Barbarella.
