For famed animation director Hayao Miyazaki, turning your vision to reality has a lot less fairy dust than it does construction equipment. “The work of animation is building up bricks and mortar, bricks and mortar,” he said earlier this year, while discussing his claims of retirement. With a quote like that, it’s almost as though he was asking his fans to pay tribute to the many celebrated films of his Studio Ghibli. And one of them did—using tiny, brightly colored digital bricks.

In honor of the U.K. release of Ghibli’s latest international picture, The Wind Rises, Birmingham-based artist Richard J. Evans gave the studio’s work the full 8-bit treatment, collected above. Evans’ design work is typically far more fluid—lots of cool space stuff, for example—but he says he saw the project, which took him about a week and a half in all, as the perfect way to branch out.

“I’ve been experimenting in different styles lately, and I’ve always loved pixel art,” he says. He first encountered Ghibli in 2000 when he stumbled across a Princess Mononoke DVD. “I was trying to think of what to do, and I just thought there were already loads of 8-bit superheroes. Studio Ghibli would be something a bit different.”
