DESCRIPTION

Our Biker Tank, made exclusively for Society6, is an edgier take on the traditional Muscle Tank. It's crafted using extremely soft 100% combed jersey cotton with deep arm openings and raw cut edges. The Biker Tank is a boyfriend fit, intended to hang loose - women may wish to select one size smaller for a more fitted wear.

ABOUT THE ART

When Nintendo World, the official magazine for the japanese videogame giant in Brazil, invited me to bring my personal vision to one of the greatest company's characters, I couldn't be happier. Been a retro gamer since the NES times, I take games as a form of art and one of my inspirations in pop culture along with cinema, tv, comics, music and others.

So I decided to go with everyone's favourite italian plumber. Instead of simply trying to make Mario look badass (like loads of pointless fan-arts across the web), I wanted to challenge myself, choosing the most improbable and badass real life characters I could think of, and make them impersonate Mario and his universe, yet keeping both visual sources totally recognizable in their concepts.
