Secret Santa Super Mario painting

I can now post pictures of my Secret Santee's painting it was for someone in California. After some serious stalking (well, googling his name, looking on his FB, looking on StreetView and his You tube account) I discovered he'd been playing/posting about SMBW. The solution was obvious, paint the cover art.

After discussions with LewieP, we agreed the Japanese art work was the best one to do.

Here's the source image:

And here's the pencil outline:

I'll update this over the next few days.

Child's Play auction

I heard back yesterday from Jamie Dillion that the Assassin's Creed painting I donated to Child's Play raised $900 at the Charity Dinner and Auction in December; it's here:

I'm absolutely stunned but this, and very, very happy about it. This means that more children in hospital will have access to toys, games and games consoles, including children in Manchester Children's Hospital. I was hospitalised for weeks on end as a young child, and can remember being bored, lonely and unhappy, which is why I help raise money for Child's Play.
