Those who tune in to Podtoid will recall that Jonathan Holmes' is a social worker in a psychiatric hospital. He helps the drug-addled and mentally unstable to, if not necessarily return to active society, at least become less of a danger to themselves and others.
For years, Sonic the Hedgehog has suffered deeply from being unable to achieve the once dizzying heights of his youth. This has sent him into a tumultuous downward spiral, the depths from which no one thought he could ever emerge. Not Holmes, though. Holmes was there every step of the way to lend a sympathetic ear to one of gaming's greatest icons. His assistance helped Sonic to recapture some of that old spark with Sonic Generations, though we can never rule out the possibility of a relapse.
The above portrait, inspiring yet heartrending, is the work of community member MrNorth, a frequent contributor of Destructoid fan art. He captures an essence that can barely be contained in two-to-three paragraphs. Observe and FEEL.
