*Mario voice* “Here we go!” This weeks PotW is also the design for the week-long contest I’m having. To see how you can win visit the CONTEST post.  The NMKL (National Mario Kart League) design was created by Rodrigo Ferreira, which combines sports logo design with my all time favorite racing game Mario Kart ( which is also the only racing video game I like).

I featured Marques Cannons Pin-Up Video Game Girls back in August 2010 before I started Picture of the Week and I knew that one day I’d have to bring them back and feature his Video Girls Series again because I loved them so much! Marques is also the first artist I interviewed for PotW and I hope to interview more of the artists I feature whenever possible. Kratos is definitely my favorite reinterpretation!

Art Videogames

I love minimalist art and did a few posts in the past but this Street Fighter rendition takes it to a different level.   This is made by Infinite Continues check out their Flickr for more cool minimalist art.  He also did a Turbo Street Fighter version and Mortal Kombat. They are also available as t-shirts here.  It’s even better if you recognize them all [Source]
