There is something that is effortlessly charming and endearing about Link’s Awakening on Switch. The animation pops off the screen, transporting players to the vibrant world of Koholint. I would love an animated show in style of Link’s Awakening… Or The Minish Cap… Or, really, any of Nintendo’s superb cartoon designs. The happy animated styles always make me wistful for a bowl of cereal and Saturday morning cartoons. And I feel the exact same way every time I see the art coming out of Smoochy Pooch Studio!
An Etsy page run by Linktober veteran and animator Nadia Carrim, Smoochy Pooch Studio creates art that captures everything I love about animation. When viewing her art, we’re invited into a world where characters are living and filled with relatable emotions. Simply look at her rendition of Link and the King of Red Lions, sailing the seas at dusk. The large yawns on both of their faces is enough to put anyone to sleep!
Carrim also offers up work from other franchises, and a fair amount of personal designs. Huggable creatures abound in her portfolio and shop! If you would like to see more of her work, and follow her journey, you can do so via Instagram and Tumblr. And if you visit her Etsy shop for prints, don’t miss out on her lovely greeting cards and stickers!
So, what do you think of Nadia Carrim’s artwork? Does it put you in the mood for Saturday morning cartoons? Let us know in the comments below!
