bomber mouse, bomber mouse

They say he looks like a skull, but perhaps that's appropriate?
First pass at bombermouse!

Today I met Shigeru Miyamoto. He visited Nintendo of America for the first time in 8 years to celebrate with us the 25th anniversary of Mario. The guy is freaking awesome. He's very excited, very positive, creative, and he's the type of person that literally cannot stop smiling. He was originally the person that inspired me to pursue this industry, and it was amazing to hear his ideas about what inspires him (his hamster inspired him to make Mario in Mario 64's movement). He's exactly the type of person that I'd like to work for and work like, especially the way that he carried himself in such a positive and excited manner. Also, he made Pikmin so he's got my vote for World Dominator.
