I am much surprised that this illustration i did was featured in renowned sites and blogs after my posting yesterday .The numbers of page views on my blog and FlickR was insanely high and a few Mario fans ( i presumed ) had emailed me wondering about the Trex in the illustration. That's will be Yoshi in case you want to know.
(You can also click on the illustration to my flickr link with explanation on the Japanese Kanji.)

Lastly , I like to thanks all this sites for their feature:
