Super Mario Bros. Enemies Reimagined Straight From Your Nightmares

7 Jul

Nightmare Goomba By Michael Puncekar

I would think twice before stomping on that goomba! These Super Mario Bros. enemies look they belong in an entirely different game, maybe something the Umbrella Corporation created or a resident of Silent Hill. These darker takes on the baddies were made by Mike Puncekar

If you like creepy things (and I know you do), check out these reimagined Pokemon (you probably don’t want to catch these).

Picture of the Week- National Mario Kart League and Interview with the Artist Rodrigo Ferreira

27 Jun

*Mario voice* “Here we go!” This weeks PotW is also the design for the week-long contest I’m having. To see how you can win visit the CONTEST post. 

The NMKL (National Mario Kart League) design was created by Rodrigo Ferreira, which combines sports logo design with my all time favorite racing game Mario Kart ( which is also the only racing video game I like). I think the combination is perfect considering the intense competitiveness MK can bring out of a player and the ritual victory dances after a win which are reminiscent of end zone dances after an impressive touchdown.

My brother and I spent an absurd amount hours and days playing Mario Kart on N64, the best in my opinion (this is no way related to the fact that I’m better on N64 than on other systems). You can already guess which was my favorite character to play, I’m partial to pink. Whether it’s the tracks or battle mode, no matter how many times you play it never seems to get old which is why Mario Kart will always hold a spot in my top favorite video games. 

Rodrigo was kind enough to answer a few interview questions telling me about the inspiration behind NMKL, his favorite character and item from Mario Kart, as well as advice for aspiring illustrators and graphic designers.

Kratos- God of War

I featured Marques Cannons Pin-Up Video Game Girls back in August 2010 before I started Picture of the Week and I knew that one day I’d have to bring them back and feature his Video Girls Series again because I loved them so much! Marques is also the first artist I interviewed for PotW and I hope to interview more of the artists I feature whenever possible. Kratos is definitely my favorite reinterpretation!  Continue reading

Picture of the Week- Abstract Street Fighter Art

12 Oct

I love minimalist art and did a few posts in the past but this Street Fighter rendition takes it to a different level.   This is made by Infinite Continues check out their Flickr for more cool minimalist art.  He also did a Turbo Street Fighter version and Mortal Kombat. They are also available as t-shirts here.  It’s even better if you recognize them all
