'Fire flowers don't always sit well'

After Mario picks up a fire flower, does he eat it or hold onto it? Also, does said flower allow him to spit fireballs or throw them?

The t-shirt design below makes me think the answers to the questions above are: 1) He holds onto it and 2) It allows him to throw them.

I bring that up because before I saw Dave Mercier's (aka MercWorks') design this morning I honestly thought Mario ate these strange little flowers and then spit fireballs at his enemies.

Anyway, if you like Mercier's design as much as I do, vote for it at before the end of the day.

I think in the cartoon he always touched them to get their power, and then he threw fireballs. I'ma go with that. No barfy Mario for me.

Ah, that makes sense, too, Justin. It's such a weird power up when you think about it.

Also, does your "no barfy Mario for me" comment mean you don't like the design?

I think the art style used is really cute, personally :)

Thanks for spreading the word, Bryan! I really appreciate the positive feedback.

Bryan Ochalla said...

You're very welcome, Dave! I hope it gets enough positive feedback that it's offered up for sale. I love your art style, BTW :)

It's a funny design, for sure, but I don't think I'd wear it.

Oh, I understand -- especially considering how many gaming-related and -inspired tees are out there these days.
