Sometimes the best ideas arise just from what you do in your everyday life, like this cartoon for example, which came from playing lots of Mario! Let me explain, you see my 3 year old son Dash has liked video games for a little while now, which anyone who knows me can tell you that’s no real big surprise, but of late Mario games have become his current obsession. He’s always been a big Mario fan, I think it’s just now that his skills at Mario games are actually getting quite good, so he can play the games properly. It’s actually quite scary how good he’s getting, he can easily finish whole levels by himself, in both 3D and 2D Mario games! So Dash and I have been enjoying a fair amount of time playing New Mario on my WiiU, I know, it’s a tough gig being a stay-at-home parent.
I kind of had this vague idea about Mario getting big from mushrooms quite awhile ago, but during some ‘Mario time’ with Dash last week this full idea came to be about Mario using power-up mushrooms to ‘power-up’ his ‘equipment’. I do enjoy drawing Mario as well, so any excuse will do. Oh and just in case you have no idea what I’m talking about, in the Mario games, Mario grows bigger when he grabs a power-up mushroom like the one I’ve drawn.
So, in the next couple of weeks I’m really hoping to get some extra ‘toons saved up, as in about 2 weeks or so I’m going on a family trip to New Zealand for 2 weeks. If I get them done in time, I can set up Blogger to automatically upload them at the same time I usually do while I’m gone. I just need to find a way to automatically do some social network promotion at the same time, as most of my regular traffic comes from Facebook and other sites. I’ll look into it, I’m sure there’s a way to do it, I’ll keep you posted.
Anyway, see you next time! Thanks for reading!
