It seems there no end to the geektastic ways in which gamers are able to combine their love of Super Mario Bros. with the care they provide for their pets. Last year we shared a homemade Super Mario Bros.-themed cat climber and a couple months ago we saw a dog who’d been fantastically groomed to look like some sort of Super Mario Bros. chimera. Today we discovered this awesome 8-bit Mario Aquarium. It was painstakingly designed and created by Kelsey Kronmiller using Adobe Illustrator, LEGO bricks, PVC pipes, paint, homemade stickers and plenty of Krylon Fusion (to make sure everything is waterproof and safe for the future resident fish).

Click here for additional process photos. We hope there will be more photos once the fish move in.

Last year I posted a small series of images that illustrated my experience with depression and anxiety. It resonated with quite a few people, so I felt that it was something I should continue to build upon. I worked on it all semester as part of a portfolio class, and while it was a ton of work, I’m glad I was able to do it.

Mental health disorders are such a taboo topic. If you ever bring it up in conversation, people awkwardly get silent, or try to tell you why it’s not a real problem. When I was in the worst parts of depression, the most helpful thing anyone could have done was to just listen to me - not judging, not trying to find a solution, just listen. I’m hoping that these images will help open up conversation about mental health issues. Everyone is or will be affected by them one way or another, and ignoring them doesn’t make things better.
