Section crops of my most recent commission piece. The brief was to sketch up something involving a girl, music, hopeless romance and drinking too much. Inspiration for this one wasn’t hard to come by! I had loads of fun putting it together.
Mario by Adam Sevy
Artist notes: “Hey, it’s a me, the Godfather! Let’s think about it, it’s been thirty years since 1981, when Mario was a new, mushroom eating, dinosaur riding, princess saving plumber. He’s got to be sixty-plus by now. I at first sketched a fun, happy old Mario with a walker (because he’s a happy fellow). But then I thought of all the video game characters, he’s like the big dog and has been for decades. He’s the Godfather of the video game world! I instantly saw a Mario-Brando retired in his garden chasing the grand kids.”
He’s right, Mario is the Don.
