Nintendo, Video Games, Satoru Iwata, and 88

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 13, 2015, 12:24 PM


I did some reading about satoru iwata today after hearing of his death.
Sadly he wasnt a name that i knew.  My knowledge of Nintendo employees was limited to only Shigeru Miyamoto..

But actually seeing it put together what he really did for nintendo was really incredible..   He really saved it!
I think it seemed that after the GameCube, that nintendo was a bit lost and had given up its seat on top of the industry..

but then Satoru Iwata takes over a sinking ship and brought about the DS, the WII and the WII-u and really turned everything around for them..
The DS being p much the only popular handheld gaming device with a loyal fanbase and the Wii completely changing the way games had been played 
You really see what contributions he made,  not even mentioning his working his way up on the older pokemon and kirby games..

His mission being to make games fun for everyone, and proclaiming to have "the heart of a gamer"
I feel like he understood so clearly why he was in the business he was in..
and I feel like i should have known his name..

Im reading several comments on my last 88 artwork along the lines of "lovely tribute to satoru iwasa"
and the odd thing is that I posted it right before hearing of his death.
I spent the entire week on that drawing and the timing of it being finished was eerie..
because creating it for me was a nostalgic look back at old video games and remembering the past
and looking at it after the fact, seeing 88 sadly holding a nintendo on the day the president of nintendo passes away
its really such a bizarre coincidence..

It was not a tribute to him,
but most 88 drawings are tributes to the solace we find in games..
to the enjoyment of them, and how they help us get through the day...
to a feeling i get sometimes where blowing the dust off of a cartridge and flicking the power button just makes everything ok for a while

and in that sense it is a tribute to what Satoru Iwata worked toward~

...




before i go,  speaking of the recent 88,
i really want to thank EvaBeeSmith gabzillaz Helixel and godzilla23 for helping me fill the picture with lovely details~
cheers you guys~

I am a visual artist working and living in Toronto. I try my best to make art that either captures a feeling or causes one. Hope you like my work, and yours.

Seen your 88 character in a lot of cool dubstep videos on youtube. Your power level is very high I think my scouter broke.

There are days when you see nothing interesting on DeviantArt and there are days you stumble into artists like you stumble into people while also riding a shark through town because the bus would not let you bring your soda with you.

I love your art, it allows me to further my apodyopsis studies.
