Mario vs. Mario
So every man and his dog is sending me links to the new Toronto TTC/Mario World mash-up map by Dave Delisle (prints for sale here). It’s definitely well executed, but I couldn’t help but think I’d seen something similar before…
A couple of minutes of Googling later: a similarly-themed (although aesthetically a little different) map of the Boston MBTA done last year by Adam Summerville (prints here).
(EDIT: I’d just like to make it clear that I do not think that Dave’s map is in any way derivative of Adam’s - the aesthetics are quite different in both maps. I just thought it would be interesting to compare how two artists approach a similar concept.)
Both maps are excellently done, although I slightly prefer the Boston map for its more varied terrain. Which one do you like? Mario vs. Mario

  18. c4bl3fl4m3 answered: I like the Super Meta World one better based on looks, but as I used to live in Toronto (Sherbourne represent!), I have to go with that one.

    The top one is .. kind of boring, really. I mean, it’s clever, it’s Super Mario Bros 3 and therefore automatically...
