Getting to know the ins and outs of the San Francisco bay area rail system never looked so groovy thanks to this Super Mario World styled map.
A morning work commute can be a dreadful experience, as anyone who has had a 9-to-5 job in their lifetime can attest. But a little sugar can make the medicine go down as the Disney tune goes, and that’s exactly what graphic artist Robert Bacon has done with his Super Mario World interpretation of the Bay Area Rapid Transit system.
This isn’t the first time that Bacon has Nintendo-fied a city’s transportation map, he’s done similar illustrations, either in the style of Super Mario, Zelda, and even Donkey Kong, for New York City and Chicago, both of which – along with his latest BART map – are available for sale through riptapparel.com.
As for Bacon’s BART map, it is totally brightly in-tuned with Mario’s popular first outing on the Super Nintendo, and also includes many similar landmarks from the game. Giant smiling trees, stars, castles, and even power ups from Super Mario World make their inclusion on this excellent map that should certainly make for a nice print to hang on one’s wall.
