Animapa cover v.1 by philho Animapa cover v.1 by philho
See my journal to see what is an APA in general, and those I made in particular.
Not much to say here, I made this one two months after the first (approximatively the delay between two issues, at least at the start!).
I used Ursula, the heroin of Kiki's Delivery Service, the marvelous movie of Hayao Miyazaki, as guess star of this cover. I though her spunky character was fitting for the scene! And since she is a painter...
That's all, it is mostly a play on typography and texture effects.

Voilà, c'est tout, c'est surtout un jeu sur la typographie et les effets de texture.

Thanks, I have spent quite some time on these covers.
Funnily, years after, I was confused: was it Fio from Porco Rosso? So I checked the issues, and saw that at the time, I made a mini contest, asking who is she. And some people answered Fio. They have some family semblance, indeed!

Ghibli always had a problem with making characters look the same with each movie them make ^__^

So it's an honest mistake, :D

Yes! Let's call it "strong unity of style"... :D
