About This Listing
This is an archival fine art print featuring an original illustration of Ponyo & Sosuke completed by Bryana Joy in 2023 using gouache on 100% cotton paper affixed to a birchwood panel. The print measures 8x10 inches, including a 1-inch white border, and is signed and labelled with pencil in the bottom margin. It is printed on Moab’s 290 gsm Entrada Bright paper. Each print is accompanied by a printed and stamped artist statement telling the story of the painting and documenting the specifications of the print. All prints are archival and unframed. 

Bryana Says
My adoration for Hayao Miyazaki’s turbulent and wonderful 2008 animated film Ponyo is so big it was bound to spill over into some kind of art. I spent many happy days painting this intricately-detailed little gouache piece in hopes of capturing the spirit of Ponyo and Sosuke in my own style and medium. What I love most about Ponyo is the rowdy innocence and the chaos of it: how much respect it pays to the inner lives and escapades of very young children; how reverently it treats their attachments and friendships as things capable of enduring and of holding great meaning. And how kindly it nods to that tremulous hope we’re all perhaps harboring: that our loves can survive our differences, that we can, in spite of everything, find a way to be together and no one hurt.
