Customs for a Cure amiibo artist spotlight: Ryan Benno | Nintendo Wire

Nintendo Wire is proud to introduce Ryan Benno, the artist behind two of the custom amiibo up for auction for this year’s Customs for a Cure charity event. Ryan, also known as BlvdNights, is well known for his work creating amiibo using a 3D printer. His unique methods produce high quality pieces of artwork unlike any other custom amiibo we’ve seen in the community. Giving the amiibo an even more distinguished flair are the custom bases he creates specifically for the amiibo.

We’re thrilled to be working with an artist as talented as Ryan for the event, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the hard work he’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 Ryan 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.
