Mario Kart 8

Taking part in my second exhibition in the space of 1-week I was invited by Shortlist Magazine and Game to take part in an exhibition of alternative game art celebrating Shortlists 10 birthday by re-imagining some iconic games from the past decade.  The brief "Mario Kart as you've never seen it before".  Being a huge fan of the game (having played it all the back on the N64) I was really excited to come up with a version I have never seen before. Inspired by a love of classic racing car posters and old model kits I decided to imagine Mario, Peach, Bowser and Wario as real gruff faced racers.  I was really pleased with how the piece turned out and a huge thanks to Shortlist and Game for inviting me to celebrate with them!  Digitally painted in Photoshop.
