It’s hard not to feel inspired after watching one of the fantastical films of Hayao Miyazaki. According to Juxtapoz, 50 artists have channeled that spark into works of art celebrating the legendary director.

The "Miyazaki Art Show" at Spoke Art gallery in San Francisco will feature tributes to such films as My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Spirited Away (2001), Princess Mononoke (1997), and Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989). A variety of mediums will be represented (as you can see below, one sculpture is a tray of fake food inspired by the films).

The show runs from February 4 to February 25, but for a chance to meet some of the artists in person, fans should attend the opening reception on Saturday night—costumes are encouraged.
