For Iwata by Sea-Salt For Iwata by Sea-Salt
Hard to believe it's been a year now since we learned of Mr. Iwata's passing. When I first heard about it, it was more of a shock than anything else, but once I realized just how much this man contributed to the games many of us grew up playing, it really sunk in how much of a loss this was to the world. I felt like it wouldn't feel right to not do some sort of tribute to him, even if at the time, I had barely picked up a pencil in years.

I decided to go ahead and finally upload this to DA, and at least put a better quality version out there than what I had before, in case any of you guys saw it floating around.

As you can probably guess, this is an homage to the drawing of Mickey Mouse consoling a distraught Kermit the Frog after the death of Jim Henson (if you somehow haven't: www.historybyzim.com/wp-conten…). While Sonic is obviously not of Nintendo's house, and Mario isn't Iwata's creation and more like a nephew of sorts, it just seemed fitting to have one former rival comforting the other.

Hope it's going well on the other side, Mr. Iwata.
