Vector painting of an exaggerated, sweaty, and distressed Super Mario running through a grassy field with magic mushrooms falling out of his mouth. Super stars, sparkles, and bubbles circle his head and in the background there are green hills covered with white spots.

My vector painting of “Goomin Up that Hill (A Deal with Toad) is complete! The brushes I used for the mustache, beard, and grass kept threatening to crash my computer, but then my goal was to make this piece as frenetic and overwhelming as possible, so I guess I succeeded.
