I built this site in early 2013 in order to learn how to use SVG and get some more experience drawing characters. The main goals were to represent the feeling of the movie My Neighbor Totoro ( となりのトトロ), express my connection to the movie, and make something that would be visually engaging.
The SVGs scale for different screen sizes and some of the illustrations react on mouse events. Because the SVGs are inline, they are colored and styled entirely via CSS, though there are a few SMIL animations involved (I know, I know, it was 2013).
The header uses a custom kana font made with Glyphs, which only uses the letters necessary for the title to keep filesize small.
