NES Super Mario Bros. Box Art

It's a me. A Mario. I did this piece to submit to the great blog called Palette-Swap, a site run by Rusty Shackles, who invites people to submit their interpretations of old video game packaging. Now I'm a child of the '80s who grew up in the warm glow of Mother Nintendo, and Super Mario was a fave. This is one of a series I plan to do featuring the old "black" boxes from back in the day, here's the original inspiration for this piece. Keep your eyes peeled for Ice Climber next.




Five 0'Clock shadow gives Mario a new and powerful BAD-ASS quotient... Great work man...
