The Oscar-winning anime director Hayao Miyazaki has drawn a promotional image for his latest film, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, that will appear on the cover of the June issue of Yomy magazine. Yomy is the monthly supplement to the Daily Yomiuri newspaper. The drawing depicts an underwater scene from the film. Although Miyazaki is best known as a filmmaker, he is also an accomplished print artist who drew the Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind manga before adapting it into an anime feature film. Ponyo will open in Japanese theaters on July 19.
