This is my depository for art from the Super Mario games and related series. Most of it is official stuff from Nintendo but don't be surprised to see a few particularly good fan-made works. I mostly enjoy the art of Nintendo's eight- and sixteen-bit eras. Got something that you think belongs here? Send it my way. The more obscure, the better.

By the way: The names of the various worlds in this game actually do mean something. In fact, they’re based on real-life geographic locations.
