Artwork for Japan

Untitled

Right now, a lot of people are still coming together to help Japan. I’m very glad. Watching people unite and get through the tragedy has been inspiring. It easily could have been soul-crushingly sad, but people want to keep hope and push through to succeed and keep moving, and they should. I admire them.

The above piece is something I created to sell in order to raise more money for Japan tsunami relief. It is currently on sale here at Etsy. Funds from the sale of this piece will go to the Tennessee Tomodachi Fund, founded by the Japan-America Society of Tennessee in response to the recent events. I’m spreading the word because I just want to do as much as I can, when help is needed most. I’ve felt particularly powerless lately, but that shouldn’t stop me or anyone else.

(I’m also selling another piece right now, the funds from which may or may not go to a similar charity, but will go to a charity.)

As for the other related art projects I’ve had my eye on…

Art for Japan‘s first batch of artwork just went up auction! It has a lot of wonderful submissions, the sale of which will benefit AmeriCares Japan relief.

Aftershock will be releasing a charity book soon! My above artwork will appear in it in a slightly altered form

CFSL is going to print a charity book later this year.

Please, everyone, keep your hearts open, and send your power to the places that need it!

Muscle March: Catch the Imp!

You know that game Muscle March that I made two posts about earlier? Well, I finally remembered to buy it. It’s just as challenging as I thought it would be, with a dash of “oh gawd” near the third parts of stages.

I’m mainly making this entry because there’s a hot pink kappa in the village stage, which amuses me to no end:

Referred to as simply "Imp" in-game

Imp took my protein!

He stands out so much that it’s hard not to follow his movements, but that doesn’t make him any easier to catch. Here’s a video of his stage.

I would’ve edited this into the Matsuri Kappa post, but that might not be fair as this month is a competition to win something, and I already made my (somewhat rushed) entry! So I just posted this separately. Hurrr.

With any luck NA support for this game will inspire them to eventually bring Captain Rainbow over here, since Captain Rainbow looks awesome.
