About Mike


I wanted to do my own version of the SNES classic, Super Mario World. I’ve always hated the Yoshi design, but thought that he was a great gameplay element, and Mario get more family friendly by the year, I felt it was time for some grittiness.

"Since Mike Mitchell's initial posting on Artist A Day he's become one of the world's greatest social commentators which he does through a pop culture themed body of work. Both an ode to the nostalgic and a visual essay on the world today, the work is always produced with pristine technical ability and a one of a kind eye for color."

Dear Mr. Mitchell

Cheers sir,
great work.
I will say that your portrail of Yoshi is a little rough, You were much more generous to mac.

its not snobby robbie. i'm guessing its an unwillingness to be insulted graciously. an appreciation for real talent and vision. a overdosed feeling for the fashion of inability that is so adored by the mass that embrace it because it justifys their own commonness and ineptitude. sure, the small are not depressed they are small.

Some people think it's depressing to call this art. I think it's depressing to be such a snobby art-arse. This is good stuff.

Frankly I would rather see the Dino devouring the "M" rider. The annecestors of the dino will have outlived the "rider types" by an infitisamal much. The land would have been trackless had they the shoestringed red bindings. The other image here is far superior. No IQ needed on either side of the image as it proves my point, of the latter.
