SONIC and MARIO BROTHERS - Fan Art

FAN ART-FLIP ART: here's one example from start to finish.

My son, Jake, has a friend who needed some art for his design shop. He bought 120 plain blocks of wood and asked his friends to supply the rest.

Jake wanted to come up with a fun design.

So, first my husband and Jake had to use a router to get the angles cut into the flat block of wood. It was a fun father/son project.

Then Jake had to come up with the art. This is an example of fan art because Jake loves video games and Sonic and Mario Brothers are two of his favs.
This is a Sonic/Mario block. At first glance it doesn't look like much of anything. But, when you look at it one way, it’s Sonic and when you look at it the other way, it’s Mario. I think, it came out pretty cool.

Ingenious! Mario Kart is my favorite DS game, and one of the few I sometimes win.

Any time anyone works with wood I'm impressed.

AWESOME! I can't believe the Mario Bros. are still around...who would have thought, with Donkey Kong, that our generation's children would still be playing them!

That is amazing! When I saw the first picture, I never thought it would look like the other two. I'm very, very impressed. Your family's got creativity coming out of the woodwork. (tiny giggle at my attempt at a pun)
