As a child I always enjoyed heading over to my friend's house to play Super Mario as I never had the opportunity to own a Super Nintendo. Even today, I don't own any Nintendo products. I guess it was never meant to be! However, I still try to keep up to date with how the Super Mario series have developed over the years. Hence, I decided to recreate the Super Mario Brothers cover for the Nintendo DS with Adobe Illustrator by utilizing the pen tool and gradient mesh.
