We have some exciting news for you today!

Acclaimed indie developer Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya of “Cave Story” created an exclusive piece for Press Paws! He recreated his heroes from “Cave Story” into pup pup heroes! This piece is called “Doubutsu Monogatari” (Animal Story) and is a 1 of 1 print on canvas that will be available for sale this Saturday! Want a chance to call dibs on this piece? You can claim the Indiegogo perk to get a first look on all the available pieces and 2nd dibs on a piece!

Daisuke Amaya is the award winning creator and designer of the beloved video game, Cave Story. Affectionately known as Pixel to his fans, Daisuke spent over five years to single-handedly develop the sprawling action-platformer. His partnership with developer and publisher, Nicalis, Inc., was announced in late 2008, with a 2010 release of a remastered Cave Story on Wii and DSi as well as the  Nintendo 3DS.

 Since the release of Cave Story, Pixel has co-developed and collaborated with Nicalis on various projects, such as Ikachan and Guxt, as well as developed new games independently. Daisuke graduated from HAL College of Technology & Design in 2000 and is currently developing with Nicalis, Inc. on various platforms.

Press Paws is this weekend and we still have a few tricks up our sleeve this week so stay tuned to our blog all week long!

PREVIEW: Jesse Riggle



When we first received this piece from Jesse Riggle, we couldn’t contain how excited we were about this piece. The body language on Mario and the facial expression on that cat is just absolutely priceless!

Jesse’s unique style and intricate detail has always made us happy so this piece was just the perfect thing to see on a Sunday night and get the week started with a smile! It’s absolutely wonderful to be able to work with someone like Jesse!

Check out all of Jesses’ amazeballs work here!

Check out this awesome piece from Leen Isabel from Girls Drawin’ Girls! We always appreciate a good FF interpretation since many of us at Press Paws worked at Square Enix for years and we have a squishy spot for Final Fantasy!

Leen also contributed an article about Press Paws on Geeks Girls so check that out as well!!


PREVIEW: Samuel Ho


Who would have thought a zombie pup could be so adorable! Only Samuel Ho can create a piece that  make you go “awwww” over a pup chillin’ on a severed zombie hand 🙂

We can’t tell you enough about how incredibly lucky we have been with all of our artists! It’s been like a dream working so closely with people like Samuel who we have been following and admire!

Thank you for all the love, support, and believing in us! We promise to put on a great show!

Check out Samuel’s other work here!

PREVIEW: Aaron Jasinski


When I think Master Chief, I immediately think Shih Tzu with a red bow. I mean, seriously folks, what other breed would he honestly own? When he isn’t busy saving the universe, he is busy rescuing dogs!

Aaron Jasinski‘s off beat humor in his art has always been something we loved and was over the moon when he accepted to work with us on Press Paws!

You can check out all his amazing work here!

PREVIEW: Kiersten Essenpreis
