Final piece for Bottleneck Gallery's 3NES Show, which premieres Sept 6th, in Brooklyn, NY.
Fun fact: I’d never played all of the way through Ocarina of Time until about two weeks ago. As a child, a) my family didn’t own an N64, and b) when I tried playing it at a friend’s house, my friend would tell me I was ‘doing the puzzle wrong’ or ‘this game’s too hard for you,’ yanked the controller out of my hands, and proceeded to beat the game a second time. I sort of had wrongful disdain against Ocarina of Time as a result. So upon playing it through, all grown-up now, I had everyone and their mom tell me the Water Temple was just godawful and was their least favorite temple.
I FREAKIN LOVED THAT TEMPLE. WHO THE HELL CARES IF YOU HAVE TO KEEP CLANKIN YER IRON BOOTS ON EVERY 2 SECONDS? GIMME THAT OVER LENS OF TRUTHIN’ EVERYTHING.

Super Mario Bros. illustration for Bottleneck Gallery's Nintendo Show in September. Brooklyn, NY!
If you were the younger sibling in the 80s, you are very familiar with Luigi. Sometimes your older sibling would almost beat the entire goddamn game of the original Mario Bros before you'd get your damn turn to finally play as Player 2.
If that's not resentment speaking, I don't know what that is.
