It’s no wonder that the cosplay community often enjoys taking the mantles of many of Miyazaki’s characters at conventions and photo shoots.

Miyazaki’s art shows clear, fluid motions, with an emphasis on emotions and expressiveness, and lush, evocative backgrounds. He’s probably best known to American audiences for his work on the films Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away, but his longest serialized work is the manga Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.
