Bry Sharland, a dedicated reader of Nintendo Power since he was 4 years old, has painted an incredible image as a tribute to Nintendo Power magazine, which includes Nintendo's most popular characters; Mario, Zelda, Samus, plus many more notable icons.
Bry has been working on this artwork since August while being involved with two jobs. He says he's "terribly depressed" about having a world without the Nintendo magazine. He also went on to say this in a letter to the publication:
I’m including a painting I started working on in August as soon as I found out the news about the magazine ending. I poured my heart and soul into it. It’s the expression of all the feelings I’ve had, tempered with the sadness of losing you this December. It was really hard getting it done on time, as I work two jobs and often don’t have the time or energy after work. I pray that you will print it, and this letter, in one of your final issues. None of my letters as a kid made it into the magazine, but you were always kind enough to write back to me either way. Thank you for that. Thank you for everything.
Serious kudos to Bry for this, it truly is a work of art. Nintendo Power is set to release its last magazine this December.
