the cat bus coming to a bus stop near you

totoro slept through his alarm this morning and nearly missed the cat bus! good thing he has his spinning top! 

this was a personal challenge as well as a commissioned piece. little by little, i pieced the bus together over the course of several months. i didn't use a pattern and this design is all my own. i used stills from the movie as a reference and let my hands and mind do the work! i especially love the mice headlights. i couldn't leave those off, of course!

this totoro and cat bus combo will soon be adopted by a blue-eyed soon-to-be three year-old! they're nervous to move into a new home, but so excited for a new play-mate!
