Inspired by the 2013 Rare Candy: Pokémon Charity Gallery, the San Jose State University ShrunkenHeadMan Club’s Charity Committee has arranged Press Start: Nintendo Charity Gallery. The gallery features characters from a variety of Nintendo games, such as The Legend of Zelda, Earthbound, Animal Crossing, Mario, and many more!
You can bid online at http://tiny.cc/SHM_Nintendo
Proceeds from the gallery auction will go to the Morgan Autism Center, an organization devoted to helping autistic individuals. You can find more information about Morgan Autism Center here: http://www.morgancenter.org/
Who are the artists?
All of the artists are from San Jose State University’s Animation/Illustration program. Interested students and alumni were assigned a random character from their favorite Nintendo game. Artists were given complete artistic freedom on their piece, and we are excited to present a variety of styles of our favorite games.
The gallery and bidding will be open from April 25th to May 16th.
The gallery’s opening reception is on Friday, April 25th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm with a live performance from Super Soul Bros (www.SuperSoulBros.com)

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
Imagine having braces during the apocalypse. no one can take your braces off. And you just have to accept that you’ll have braces forever.
i want a novel focused around a character with braces during the apocalypse and the entire plot of the story revolves around their search for an orthodontist who is still alive and they sort of accidentally save the world in the process
The most beautiful cat cafe I have been to. It’s called Temari no Ouchi (Temari’s house) in Tokyo, Japan. The soft music and ambience feels like you are in a Studio Ghibli film. Had to take the Japan Railway there, but was totally worth the extra trip, & unlike the central Tokyo cat cafes, this one has no time limit, so feels totally relaxed. Several girls were even sleeping there amongst the cats.
[2014-02-27] My final piece for Press Start, a Nintendo charity gallery auction. I lost my previous rendition of Tetra and had to redo it. This one’s done with watercolors and metallic spray paint.
The gallery opening reception is going to be on April 25th, from 7pm to 9pm, and will stay open for a month. Our website will be up on April 18th. Bidding for artwork will begin April 25th. All proceeds from the gallery will go to the Morgan Center, a center in San Jose for autism.
I will post more information on the gallery as we get closer to the gallery opening. Check it out if you can!
I remember how much her realization that she was “never going to be good enough for him” resonated with me when I first watched this movie. She decided to push herself, not to be with him, but to prove him the fuck wrong.
