For May, 2012, Giant Robot hosted "Game Over" a video game themed group art show. As of late, I've been using the group shows to create images that didn't feature any of my main characters. So for the "Game Over" I chose to illustrate the "Piranha Plant" or "Pakkun Plant" from the game Super Mario Bros.
9" x 12"
Acrylic + Ink
The thing that I find amusing about this painting is this 'chicken or the egg' type scenario I've created. What's exactly going on? Did Mario need to use the restroom and thus fall prey to a trap set by the Pakkun Plant? Or is the Pakkun Plan using the restroom cause he recently ate Mario? I'm inclined to say the latter since Mario's hat can be seen resting on the floor along with the metal buttons from his overalls. Thus suggesting that Mario came to the restroom to do his business when he was attacked and over taken by the plant.
