Illustrations done for the Nausicaa manga ===== Manga began running in monthly 'Animage' in Feb. 1982, collected in order of appearance ===== Notes: 1 of my favorites, & I worked very hard on it. I never liked drawing standard pictures of Nausicaa looking cheerful. Nausicaa looking out & smiling just seemed wrong to me. When she's alone, I always imagined her looking very unapproachable. Not b/c she was intimidating, but b/c of a quiet isolation, like she wasn't part of her surroundings at all.
