What to do with this?

I've been playing with Manga and Studio ghibli inspired designs all week.  Here is my rough sketch for an idea that literally popped into my head as I was falling asleep one night!  I think the idea of Gigi (cat in the tree) being freaked out was what started my mind off on it's ramblings as she is such a delicate creature!

I love working with chalks and pastels and this was a chance to see what I could do with a black background. I love how it's turned out and have been asked to make some Halloween cards for a couple of people. It's going to be very heavy on the ink, so I'll only make a couple and maybe one or two A4 or A5 size prints. Does that seem like a good idea? I'm not sure as this is just me playing :D

Would you believe there are characters from 6 different movies here??? Not all of them ghibli's (Skelly is from a Tim Burton movie and there is at least one Pokemon there and the two cats are mine :D )  As I said, it's just a bit of fun :D
