"Pipedreams" by Dan Schoening










Dan writes:
"Basically the piece was inspired by my artist friend Tim Kelly. He suggested I do a line up of Mario characters. Instead, I decided to make it more pin up like, and throw in as many characters that I enjoyed from the Mario series into it. The art itself was also a test in a new more fluid style, as I normally have a more angular feel to my work."

Wow, that's easily one of the best Mario-inspired art I've ever seen.

I'm hoping Dan might let us do some prints, like Jacob's.

Yeah that'd be a good idea. It would make a nice poster!

Crazy nice. There's a game or two I need to play, it seems, from looking at this.

...where's Daisy?

Seriously, though: I've got a fever, and the only prescription is more pixels. Your higher res copy is not nearly high res enough!

Wow nice! I'd love to see more games given that treatment!

Looks like the people at Kotaku like it too: Lifemeter Comics Mario Pipedream

Trying not to point out too many missing characters, because I know there's no way you could have gotten all of them in, and I'm sure you did a fair amount of agonizing over who to cut, but: No Koopa Troopas?

Would it be possible to get a 2560x1024 version of this to use as my dual-monitor wallpaper? Thanks.

Hot dog, do I love that cute li'l skinny Goomba! And...I do declare! The Dr. Mario viruses and Tatanga! Awesome!

Hey, here's a question someone here might be able to answer - Is Birdo a girl or a guy in drag? I seem to remember an old Super Mario 2 strategy guide or instruction booklet that said Birdo was a dude...

I seem to remember something like that, too...
But I think maybe Birdo is pretty firmly a girl now.
