IF - Leap



When I think about the word leap, and leaping, I think of the Mario Brothers. Those heroic plumbers specialized in leaping, and giant coin collecting. With that in mind, I illustrated the cartridge of my most favorite Mario game never made "Pickle Mario Bros." It was basically Super Mario, but instead of mushrooms and coins, Mario collected pickles and pickle slices.

Now if you are currently singing the Mario music in your head (or out loud), you're welcome. Don't worry it should stop in about a week or two.

This one is awesome! I have the music from world 1-2 looping in my brain.
I love the way you painted the cartridge, it looks like the real thing. Great stuff!

What about a Pickle Spongebob game? My son is playing that right now, so I can't hear anything in my head except that. This is a really fun idea!
