Shy Guy Yoshi's Island DS for Mario's Blacklist

“I thought about what goes on in the daily lives of the denizens of the Mushroom Kingdom; they play tennis, go racing, golf, and on occasion fight.

Then, I thought about the Shy Guy. Why does he wear a mask? Is he just bashful, or maybe even disfigured and ashamed to show it? Why does he only get invited to *some* of Mario’s gatherings? Does he have anyone he can relate to? As a naturally bashful person, I felt I could be the one to relate to him. I wanted to depict him in a situation I know all too well; a room full of people, feeling apprehensive, wondering why it’s just so hard to go up to people and strike up a conversation.

“What should I say?”

“What if they don’t like me?”

So I wanted to depict the Shy Guy being just that; a shy guy.

I hope you enjoy.”
