Well as gorgeous as two overweight mushroom-smoking turtle murderers can be, anyways. This collection of incredibly stylistic Super Mario fan art is pretty spectacular. The amount of variety, from realistic portrayals to almost Cubist and cartoon versions, is impressive to view and showcases the beyond-niche impact the Bros. have had on counter-culture.
The collections includes artwork scoured from Deviant Art as well as various blogs and fansites.
