I just finished sealing my latest pet painting! Here’s a photo of Ponyo’s portrait:
I’m planning to deliver it next week.
If you’re curious about her name, this corgi was named after Brunhilde, daughter of the sea wizard Fujimoto, in the Ghibli animated film Ponyo. Early in the film, she declares her preference to be called Ponyo, and we follow her reclamation of her identity and sense of purpose throughout the film. I’m not doing this film any justice at all by how I’ve described it, but I won’t say more so I don’t spoil it. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for something to watch that’s got a mix of tenderness, adventure, and sprinkles of magic and mysticism.
Personally, I think Ponyo rolls off the tongue much easier than Brunhilde. What do you think?
