Pauline with a giant steamed bun by Studio Despotamus - Joel Gaylard

“So, the below image of Princess Peach is official Nintendo art for a Club Nintendo exclusive calendar of some sort and I thought it was really cool, because of this I tried to reproduce a similar image using my favourite Super Mario lady Pauline (above). I did it in half an hour in Adobe Illustrator, it’s not perfect by any means or original but it’s fan art, so that’s okay AND I thought it was cute enough to post!”

“Is this a biting commentary on corporations and business, OR it is just a couple of cute stubby snakes in business suits? I’ll never TELL!”

Inktober 2017 - 11 “Run” by Studio Despotamus - Joel Gaylard

“Granny heard you were home alone with nothing to eat, so she is running to the rescue as fast as her little legs can carry her (this is a little similar to my first Inktober piece for “Swift” but still …), YAY! .”

Inktober 2017 - 6 “Sword” by Studio Despotamus - Joel Gaylard

“I actually struggled with Inktober’s sixth subject, sword. I realised I hardly ever draw swords so that’s new. Regardless, I bet you can’t guess how this poor fellow died!?”
