So, I’m in a video game gallery show in Chicago in February, and thought I would post a few concepts I’m working on… starting with a Halo / Super Mario Bros Mash-up. SMB is —shockingly— the fist/oldest video game I can remember playing, back on the ol’ NES. Halo, is for all intents and purposes the “newest” game I play. And look! I’ve mashed them up!
The next idea is a full blown, almost comic style Mario going all “Mission Impossible” on us. This is the first of several ideas that center around the notion that a couple of badass dudes from Brooklyn might not venture into magical demon-infested realms quite so lightly equipped. I mean, these guys are from New York in the 80s… damn right they’re packing some heat.
