On May 10, 2018, Gematsu will celebrate its 10th anniversary. Yes, 10 years ago this website launched, and for 10 years I have been doing my best to keep the world updated on video game news, mainly of the Japanese variety.
I have not planned anything major for this milestone year, but I would like to sell some merchandise featuring Mr. Gematsu—the Gematsu mascot. And to celebrate the readership that keeps me from shutting down Gematsu and going into hibernation, I would like to buy the illustrations of Mr. Gematsu to be used for that merchandise from our community.
So this is a call to all artists. Whether you have commented on Gematsu in the past, lurk, or are just looking for something to do, I am seeking your assistance. I am hoping to buy three illustrations that users will be able to select from when purchasing merchandise. Preferably, these illustrations should feature Mr. Gematsu and something 10th anniversary-related. But if you have any better ideas, feel free to give them a shot.
If you are interested, you are welcome to comment here, but ultimately please send me an e-mail at editor[at]gematsu[dot]com.
I appreciate everyone’s support. Thanks for keeping Gematsu going for 10 years. Here’s to many many more.
