Jew Wario - One Last Go by PhilWiesner Jew Wario - One Last Go by PhilWiesner
A few years ago, I started on making this series called "Wasteland" where I was going to illustrate the various reviewers of (and beyond) That Guy With The Glasses in a cyberpunk, post apocalyptic setting.

I focused first on the ones I liked the most or had the best ideas of what I could draw them as. One of which was Jew Wario, whom I got a great idea for this fictionalized self of him from his love of the Kamen Rider series when I hung around his streams for a bit. And I worked on making a great picture for him, but ultimately fell like I fell short of the mark.

I started this redesign of the character a while ago, but found it hard to stay with it, so progress on this inched forward painstakingly slow. I at one point send a preliminary outline of it to Jew Wario, but no response came my way, so I decided to keep it under wraps until it was finished.

Two weeks ago, I had the time to complete it, but because of being wearied by the changes in my life (new college, new career focus, and a feeling of a new beginning), I didn't get back to the designing the last part of the drawing.

I learned today of his passing, and while it probably would not have changed the events much, I do feel at a loss that he never got to see the completed piece.

Fight on, Jeweegee, to a place where depression cannot hope to touch you.

This is a great picture. However it is also how I just found out about Jewario's death, so theirs that. Oh we'll. Life keeps chugging on. R.I.P Jewario. May we never forget you.
