Kingdom Hearts series creator and director Tetsuya Nomura has posted a message on Twitter celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Kingdom Hearts franchise and shared a sketch of the anniversary art he only started yesterday:

ย 


Good evening. Thank you for your 20th anniversary congratulatory message. I'm sorry that the preparations for the 20th anniversary event are currently unsuccessful, but I have no preparations today. I started drawing pictures for the 20th anniversary yesterday, and I'm thrilled if I can make it in time for the event. Thank you for your continued support @ Nomura

Can we appreciate a procrastinator who starts working on his piece a day before and posts the incomplete sketch at 1:30am Japan Time on a Monday rather than being asleep since itโ€™s a work day lol

I just appreciate Tetsuya Nomura, period. His artistic style is iconic and it's all the more impressive that this was a last-minute piece.

It's better than anything, but honestly I don't like these delays. What's the reason for them?! Covid can't be an excuse for everything anymore. FF7 had its 25th anniversary art finished in time...

A few partial characters for a logo vs a full blown illustration isn't really comparable.

Yeah, this artwork looks like it's going to be on par with a game cover and it's possible he'll color it too

I think it has more to do with the fact that they are celebrating the anniversary in April, so Nomura probably just 100% forgot that today was the actual anniversary lol

Also Nomura is a chronic procrastinator and also overworked on other projects.

Heโ€™s an overworked man working on a bunch of projects so I understand him not starting it sooner but I do agree. I was hoping for a finished artwork today, and to hear it may not even be done for the event in two weeks is just ๐Ÿ˜ข
