If only we could draw Mario this well

If only we had access to our notebooks from back in school, when our fascination for gaming was scribbled in the margins of every single page, whether it be Algebra homework or the cafeteria menu for the month. Oh, to be a young boy again, with not a single care but how high of a score we could achieve in Super Mario Bros. 3.

Thankfully, through the efforts of deviantART user Themrock, we can do just that. Sitting here and staring at the deviantART user's inspired pieces of fanart causes us to swell with nostalgia and reminisce about those times when our only responsibility to ourselves was to play games, not just write about them.
