Growing up I was obsessed with The Mario Bros. as were a bazillion kids who grew up in the late eighties/early nineties.
These guys had so much appeal to me because they really reminded me of my dad and my uncle. But are mustachioed and both are awesome.
Some of the first drawings where I actually tried to pay attention to the characters design was of Mario. I can still remember the clear thinking of noticing that drawing mario as a stick figure wasn't cutting it. Haha.

It's 2009. I should say something poignant.
New years resolutions blow. They're are stupid because no one decides at the beginning of the year that they're going to stick to one or two goals set at improving oneself.
No sir, people are trying hard everyday to be the best they can. I know I'm trying and I know most of my buddies are.
So screw new years resolutions and their phony attempt to simplify our crazy lives.
Besides I always have the same set of resolutions...one of them is to draw more. Saying I'm going to do that at the beginning of the year is silly.
The only way to grow is to push myself into fearful situations.
So here's to craziness and throwing yourself into the heat of creative turmoil. Cheers!
