On top of these great illustrations (Mother, Dragon Quest) I’ve been sharing by Amelicart, please note that the illustrator has also recently released an art book called Our Time Capsule (Bokura no Taimu Kapuseru). You can order it online here, and they also support overseas orders.
I shared an illustration by Amelicart not too long ago — this great homage to Mother — and here’s another fantastic illustration, this time to pay tribute to the 30th anniversary of the Dragon Quest series (which I’ve recently been playing a lot).
Yesterday I was pointing out the fantastic Mother-themed planners from Hobonichi Techo, but I failed to point out the also excellent Mr. Saturn cases. I kinda want them all.
I haven’t used a paper planner in years and so can’t really justify getting one (I even still bought one for years, that would never see much use), but I still lust for one every year, and the object of my desire is always the Mother-inspired covers that have been part of the Hobonichi Techo collection […]
If you were to ask me what my favorite New Year images I’ve seen shared so far, first up would be the Mother-inspired illustrated piece by Amelicart (pictured above, via this tweet), and then the Legend of Zelda illustration shared by Nintendo, below, which pays tribute to classic imagery of the original game (both below).
If I was in Tokyo today, I would have made a point of going to Joseph’s Pico Pico Cafe for a piano concert of music from the first two Mother games (known as EarthBound in the west) by Kousuke Hata. You can also purchase two CDs of his Mother music at the cafe.
I got this on Christmas day through the Virtual Console, and I felt like a kid, holding up my Wii U controller and entering this Super Nintendo-powered world. Smaaash! I kinda feel like I should be wearing my Mother t-shirt when I’m playing this.
