Texas artist Nick Derington has immortalized some very important moments from your youth.

The print series called “Boss Fight” shows Mario, Link and Samus as they prepare to do battle with Bowser, Ganon, and Mother Brain.

He sold out of the first editions of the prints back in January, and now he’s offering them again through a Kickstarter project.

A description of the project from his page:

This project consists of three illustrations that recreate the nervous excitement that meant reaching a game’s hard earned final moments. A testament to the hours spent building skills, solving puzzles and defeating all the minions that stood in your way towards the game’s final confrontation.

 

Derington has done work for DC Comics, Marvel and Mondo, and he was lead animator for “Scanner, Darkly.”

He reached his fundraising goal after only an hour, and is now also offering a bonus print called “Mario’s Regret” to anyone who has funded at any level if he reaches $18k.

Have you always loved Shakespeare but you feel like it's been missing a certain canine quality? Well you're not the only one. Kevin Broccoli has set out to create a production of Hamlet starring all pugs. What's the show called, you ask? You guessed it: "Pug-let." Is this something you want to see happen? Mr. Broccoli needs your help. Here's what he has to say on his Kickstarter page:

I want to produce the first-ever all-pug production of "Hamlet." As you can imagine, this will require finding very talented pugs.

For years I've dreamed of mounting one of Shakespeare's most glorious works with nature's most glorious creation: The Pug.

This will be the first-ever (that I'm aware of) all-pug production of "Hamlet." The actors will be pugs--even Gertrude.

It will be an amazing theatrical event. Please help us bring it to life.

*If the project is fully funded, we can film it so people who can't travel to see the show can still receive a link to view the production in lieu of an actual ticket.
