      Dave is like an awesome Bob Ross (Japan edition). Just listening to him makes me feel all relaxed for some reason ^_^

      I've gotten a TON of requests for Metal Gear. I'll definitely visit it somtime in 2013, as this project gets even bigger! :)

      Jed, can't wait for a Metal Gear one, possibly Old Snake??? Please lol... Great job on the kickstarter my friend...

      Just commented on the video itself..."When I first talked to Jed about his work and maybe future drawings I'm sure he didn't expect it to be such a huge success. I saw it coming...you guys have found something extraordinary and I really hope you'll continue on this path and I'm sure that you'll deliver superb quality. I'm studying Japanology and seeing some of my favorite childhood heroes of video games portrayed in this unique art...well..there are no words to qualify that feeling. Thank you. You deserve this =)"

      As soon as Zelda and some other woodblocks are here I'll up my pledge to get those too. Magnificent work to all of you. Cheers

      I'm really excited about this project, though I could only pledge $10. However, the coloring book pdf will introduce my kids (ages 3 and 1) to a part of their ethnic heritage in a practical way through coloring that I wouldn't have thought otherwise. Thanks.

      I had just watched this one Dave's website! A moment later, it's up here! David, I am very happy to have the opportunity to support your work and the work you and Jed are doing here and am extremely glad to be a part of this. Cheers!
