30 years ago, a very popular video game franchise was born. A video game that invented a genre, made Nintendo the name in video games, and a whole franchise that is still fun even to this day. And it all started with 2 plumbers saving a princess. And that game is Super Mario Bros. 😊

This drawing is possibly the hardest drawing I’ve ever drew but I still enjoyed working on it. 😊 And yeah, I intentionally did put Pac-Man there since he did invite Mario for his birthday, so Mario Invited him back (and that they celebrated their birthdays this year). 😊

Happy birthday, Mario! Your games will still be fun for years to come. 🎉😊🎂

In loving memory of Satoru Iwata (1959-2015).

Retro Game Room Version 2
I needed to patch the walls and paint, so I thought I might as well change it all up.

23 different consoles and handhelds, about 450 old games. Framemeister xrgb-mini upscaler so it doesn’t look bad on a new tv, handmade custom MAME cabinet, and a fuzzy chair and fuzzy carpet :)

A lot of work, and a lifetime of collecting!
