The sculpture with the added layer of the shadows it casts is a cool concept.

PM'd Don awhiles back but for anyone else the Chax prints were bought many, many moons ago from the Gloomy store in OhhSucka! Not even sure it exists anymore... His work has always been more toy orientated as well though & these are just litho prints too but still very cool images, I dig 'em also!

Kawaaaiiiii!!!!!!!!

Ah man I'd love a nice print from mononoke or Laputa. Seems pretty hard to get something like that, though. Google isn't turning up anything. I may just have to settle for the art book :/.
