The Totoro comission for Christel also included a sketch, to be sent to her via snail mail together with the rest of the package. At the time, in light of the recent wave of teen suicides due to homophobic bullying, she asked me for something along these lines.

After she had been so patient and understanding throughout the whole comissioning proccess, and given such an absolutely sweet brief, I felt that "one 30 minutes sketch" wasn't enough. Not only was this a lot of fun, it also made me feel accomplished in a way I hadn't in quite some time.
