Illustrator Christina Connelly has managed to create a symbolic lifestyle series based off of the iconic Super Mario video games.

Her illustrations are done in the traditional, Nintendo 8-bit style that is associated with classic games. With bright colors that match the characters she has drawn, her series simply shows the iconic game face or symbol and the life experience or factor that comes alongside with it below. For example, Christina Connelly illustrates an 8-bit Luigi and underneath is the word "Family."

Christina Connelly’s illustration series is called the ‘Sprites of Life.’ The bold colors and range of life-altering objects manage to give the viewer the power to feel that they are Super Mario themselves. Christina Connelly’s series are an instant classic for geeks and art junkies worldwide. Stats for Pixelated Gamer Illustrations Trending: Older & Average
