I remember when he painted this. Back then, he was still called Jumpman. Before he sold out...

It's Magritte's "Son of Man"


Edit: Shiny gold coin buttafuoco. Not fast enough.

I like the gilding on the frame... star, fire flower, raccoon leaf and cape feather. A fair spectrum of games 1 through 4.

The green mushroom gives you an extra life.

The red mushroom makes you super.

The yellow mushroom just gives you the sense of ennui.

Oh! I get it now! Red mushroom to get big, green mushroom for an extra life and a mustard yellow mushroom to conceal your identity when "Cops" catches you loitering on some guy's roof.

I believe that this is the first pairing of the leaf and the feather in the same place, besides the Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World combo cartridge.

this must be a pretty old self portrait. i mean just look at the cracking in the sky in the upper right of the frame. if this were more current there would be some sort of spaceship, the guy hasn't been to the mushroom kingdom since the wii came out.

Oh woot, you know anything with that plumber is pretty much an instant buy, and almost always a guaranteed sellout. Well done.

And the ones that mother gives you don't do anything at all.

The Cape-feather, the Tanooki-leaf, the Super-star, and the Fire-flower.
These are the the deep forbidden power-ups he's been longing for.

Doesnt remind me of the original at all.

Anything with console games on it screams "I AM IMMATURE" anyways.
