I personally don’t do well with grief. Although I have great ease expressing my happiness, I find it hard to articulate my feelings when stricken by sadness. Yesterday, I felt my heart drop when I heard the news of Mr. Iwata’s passing. How do you express a loss when it is not a member of your family or friends, but you feel like that individual was like family in how he influenced your childhood? Many artists took to pen/paper/painbrush & digital art board to express their feelings. Here are some of the team’s favourites.

⠀ “whY r h poSTiNg thIs on an anImE acCOUnt” BECAUSE I CAN AND THAT I FEEL REALLY SAD FOR THIS AMAZING MAN PASSING OK ⠀ Seriously though, Satoru Iwata made a big part of my childhood with all the video games he worked on that we gamers play today. I’m really sad that he had to go, but we understand his good work that he left behind for us and we will never forget him. Ever. ⠀ So thank you, Iwata. For making my childhood, and many others as well. ⠀ #RipIwata
