Illustration Friday "Paisley"
The topic this week for Illustration Friday is "Paisley". It seems like kind of a weird topic, but, wherever.
The first thing that came to mind when I heard the topic was the shape of the fireballs on Super Mario Bros for Nintendo. Ever since that game came out when I was like 7 or 8 I thought that the paisley pattern was a Mario fireball. I would be sitting in church and some lady in front of me would have a dress on with the paisley design on it and I thought it was a Mario fireball dress. So, I drew a scene from Super Mario Bros with Mario shooting some paisley fireballs. Enjoy.
(Okay now Nintendo geeks, I know that in my illustration Mario is not wearing his red and white fireball suit. Well, guess what? I don't really care. I pulled out my artistic license and drew what I wanted to draw. So, don't go all nerdy on me mmmkay.)
