Artist Spotlight: Howl by Shikon Kiara

Ghibli Blog Artist Spotlight: Howl's Moving Castle

Today's artist spotlight features a wonderfully colorful and expressionist painting of Howl, the romantic lead in Hayao Miyazaki's 2004 movie Howl's Moving Castle. Very dynamic with skillful use of color, employing just enough negative space to allow the painting to breathe. Howl's pose is interesting; either he is falling from above, or trying to break free from the confines of his canvas.

Kudos to artist Shikon Kiara for this illustration, which was discovered on Fanpop and Pinterest. I could not find an artist's site, however. Hopefully, there are more illustrations by this artist to share with the world.
