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 more!
Proceeds from the gallery auction will go to the Morgan Autism Center, an organisation devoted to helping autistic individuals. You can find more information about Morgan Autism Center here.
All of the artists are members of San Jose State University‘s Animation and 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 the results present a variety of styles of some of our favorite Nintendo games.
Here are the vital details for the event – taken from the Press Start: Nintendo Charity Gallery facebook page:
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
