Mario by marcocasalvieri Mario by marcocasalvieri
"Why Mario is alone... well, Mario IS lonely. When I was young the first videogame I played was Super Mario Bros (I think that's how it was called), I used to be a very lonely kid and seeing Mario going on that big journey all by himself used to make me feel stronger, as if "if he can do it then I can as well".

Hahahaha XD
no wait...

O_O
why is mario so alone?
why is this place so foggy?
is he cold?
why are the goombas gone?
:C

this is good, and weird, started like a funny pic, then turned in into some kind of nostalgic thing as Waqi said.
maybe something happened in moshroom kingdom, and many years later mario went back to remember the ole times.

mario is so posing for a pic, i wonder who is taking it. hope isnt just mario all alone taking the pic to himself with autoshutter u.u

thanks for the amazing trip.
thanks mario too.

I can do that too! But keep in mind that it's just my opinion and that you should see the painting with your own eyes and ideas, not with mine.

Why Mario is alone... well, Mario IS lonely. When I was young the first 'videogame' I played was Super Mario Bros (I think that's how it was called), I used to be a very lonely kid and seeing Mario going on that big journey all by himself used to make me feel stronger, as if "if he can do it then I can as well".

The fog is quite easy. Every journey has a foggy place where you shouldn't go, but you have to. Maybe the fog in this case is where Mario doesn't want to go, it's what he doesn't want to think, maybe someone, in the past, hurt him, and those memories, maybe, lies in the fog, and if he doesn't do something the fog will come and get him.

I don't know if these couple of lines of text helped you understand a bit more what's behind the painting. I hope so!

It might be a sudden strike of nostalgia, but this is nevertheless very beautiful.

Feeling the same nostalgia everything I look at it, it was part of my childhood and have a lot of good memories with that game. Thank you so much for the kind words. :)
