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!

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:

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.
