Customs for a Cure amiibo artist spotlight: AKShop08 | Nintendo Wire

Nintendo Wire is proud to introduce Anne Kong, the artist behind three of the custom amiibo up for auction for this year’s Customs for a Cure charity event. Anne, also known as AKShop08, has been creating custom amiibo for over a year. Primarily using epoxy for sculpting and acrylic paints, Anne has continuously designed beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork for Nintendo and amiibo fans alike. Her style has evolved and become something truly remarkable to behold.

We’re thrilled to be working with an artist as talented as Anne for the event, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the hard work she’s put into helping the children and all of the patients over at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. If you aren’t yet familiar with the work done over at St. Jude, check out the organization’s official website to get a better idea of the time and dedication the doctors, staff and volunteers put into the battle against the diseases.

Customs for a Cure wouldn’t exist without help from Anne and the other wonderful artists who put their time and dedication towards creating pieces for fans to bid on in the charity auctions. While the livestream itself is over, the eBay auctions are still going strong and will be available for bidding until Tuesday, October 4th, at 4:00 p.m. CST.
