And Animal Crossing buttons

A few weeks ago on Sup Holmes, guest Mariel Cartwright (Skullgirls) teased her involvement with Press Paws- a videogame-themed gallery show to benefit What's Up Dog LA. Featured artists include Paul Roberstson, Jim Mahfood, Jeff Delgado, Bobby O'herlihyLacey Micallef (designer of these Parappa and Totokeke buttons) various artists from Girls Drawin' Girls, and many more. The show was co-sponsored by Nicalis, publisher of Cave Story and VVVVVV on the eShop. If you like videogames, dogs, or videogame dogs, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

The show opens on February 9th at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA. I'm going to do my best to make it. Barring that, I'm definitely buying one of those buttons. Parappa with teeth is the best.
