During slow times I’ll usually create a photoshop file for doodles. Nothing in particular. Just whatever is on my mind. I started drawing Super Mario in a “Mike Mignola” style. That led to this fun little drawing.
I made up a backstory of sometime shortly after the Super Mario Brothers movie there would be an animated series with that look and tone but more in league with the video games lore. Basically Ahhh! Real Monsters meets Super Mario. I’d watch it.
What happens when you select Mario instead of Luigi? Simple. Luigi waits inside some sort of nightmarish limbo realm in a coma like state. When Mario loses a life…Luigi finally gets his time to stomp goombas.
Done on a torn out piece of cardboard with colored pencils. It was scanned in, touched up a bit, and printed on canvas. It shall be one of my 6 arts for sale at Art.Cade this fall!
Hey long time no post? It’s crazy how much can change in just 2 months (for the better!). I’m 6 weeks into a new job as a lead production artist for a pretty great graphic design company. I got a great weekend coming up full of wrestling and a comic con. And now another art show is right around the corner! This was one I created tonight.
I have 2 canvas prints of a Scorpion and Subzero piece. I also created a Mega Man “blue print” that I’m pretty proud. And also a pretty shitty Samus print. I created this one tonight (along with 2 other failures). I’m going to print it on canvas. So that 5 pieces for the show. And that’s enough.
I went for a retro arcade look.I wanted to make it really simple and graphical. My other pieces are very illustration heavy so I tried something simpler with this.
