The first piece shown above is a great painting from artist Ocularinvasion (check his flickr page here) showing us what truly goes through the head of the Burger Time protagonist. The second piece, which is absolutly amazing, is done by 40 artist and took over a year to complete. Each artist was asked to interpret one character from Mario Kart and particiapte in a giant jam style painting. The result is the fantastic piece below. Do to size constraints making the pic below look shitty (trust me the piece is beautiful), do yourself a favor and see the fully blown up HQ version Here and read more about the project and artists here. My personal favorite character designs are Toad and Dry Bones Bowser.
