If Mario and Peach Were Sid and Nancy


Just because I don’t understand a project, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate it. Here’s a rather strange idea from artist Butcher Billy. I’ll just let him explain:

“So I decided to go with everyone’s favourite italian plumber. Instead of simply trying to make Mario look badass (like loads of pointless fan-arts across the web), I wanted to challenge myself, choosing the most improbable and badass real life characters I could think of, and make them impersonate Mario and his universe, yet keeping both visual sources totally recognizable in their concepts.”

His badass real life characters? Sid and Nancy, the punk rock couple that met an untimely end. Whatever his motivations (the project was commissioned by Nintendo World), it turned out pretty great. See some other pieces from the series below, and there are a bunch of related GIFs here.

  1. I dont use adblocker partly because Im lazy but also because I know these site financially benefit from the ads. I dont even mind closing a window that auto opens.

    That being said, can you do something about the ads that autoload onto EVERY picture posted? Even if they load but minimize after a few seconds that would be better. Its a first-world problem but is annoying having to close an ad every single picture.
