Nowadays life has become a capitalist game... Why?!

A photo I took in Montreal, Canada (I also made the rough sketch,
inspired by Super Mario Bros, of course).

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

See THIS VIDEO showing 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in
progress (with a small animation and an original music).

Limerick

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Here comes Mario on the run
He's just having so much fun,
Catching a dime
Whole lot of time,
Nothing's new under the sun!

This is a funny picture that's serious at the same time. Combining the Mario videogame that everyone knows with a scene of everyday life. I can really imagine Mario hopping around and grab them coins ^^ This combination of funny and serious makes the impact that much greater.
This picture really shows how everyone stares so blindly at money and try to grab more and more endlessly. It emphasizes how much capitalism means in our society. We are raised with it and get quicly good at focusing at it, like how we get to catch these coins with Mario here.
The originality of this picture is unquestionable, I've never seen a picture like that before where Mario is hopping on the streets.

Great idea of coming up with this, I like this picture alot ^^
What do you think?

This is a feather nice picture that gives a rather truthfull suggestion about society (this is why I left society for my attic). HOWEVER, I feel that unlike all of your other amazing and abstract pieces, this one doesn't conect to the photo that it's based off of. If the pipe was say, a building, or you showed a connection to the background and the sketch in a more physical manner, I feel that I would enjoy this peice much more. The rest of this critique is just me babbling until I reach to word minimum. Seriously, 100 words? Silly.

I just wish that it connected to the background like the rest of your sketches.

There's an osprey up there! Clearly symbolizing the freedom of a non-monetary society.

...or something. (I think it's an osprey, wings look too dark for a seagull.)
