It took me awhile, but I finally got around to making a map for Philadelphia. Philadelphia’s mass transit is called SEPTA and it’s short for Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority. It’s a collection of a bunch of different rail types that span over a huge area that makes it the 5th largest system in the US.... Read more »
Wisconsin is the first state map that I have created. The cities that I choose to map were based on population, colleges, tourism, and location. All the interstate highways are color coded and the key is located right next to some Wisconsin facts. Wisconsin’s has this really interesting shape that was really fun to recreate... Read more »
I have some awesome news to announce. Thanks to the support of everyone who has purchased a poster I was able to start my own small business and I am now the owner of Mario Maps LLC. I’m printing and selling all my artwork myself now. So if you want to buy a poster all that... Read more »
Georgia peach meets Princess Peach in my newest Super Mario World map. Atlanta’s mass transit probably has the coolest old school logo of any system I’ve done. Their trains even have an awesome design that reminds me of the old Houston Astros uniforms. You can print your own small version for free with a link below.... Read more »
UPDATE: The subway 7 extension has been added to the map (the update isn’t in the video) and the free poster print size is now larger at 11″ x 17″ so if you have a large printer you can make some stocking stuffers. Large prints start at just $25. The New York City Subway system... Read more »

Well a couple years later and I finally got around to D.C. It’s the second busiest rapid transit system and... Read more »
I was lucky enough to visit Boston this summer for an improv festival and I absolutely loved my time there. As soon as I got on the train I knew Boston had to be my next map. The map is set up with so many diagonal routes and intricate waterways that I just loved the... Read more »
I was born in Fountain Valley California and I spent a great deal of my childhood in Los Angeles, but never once took the Metro. This might have been the reason for my hesitancy to make a Los Angeles Super Mario map. Everyone just seems so obsessed with their own cars to worry about public... Read more »
I’ve been wanting to do the San Francisco/Oakland area for these maps for awhile now. I really loved how the coast turned out and it was fun thinking of the proper way to represent the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. I really wanted to put the sunken ship around Ocean Beach where the King Philip famously... Read more »
After finishing the New York and Chicago maps I really wanted to go even bigger. That led me to my largest pixel map ever, Tokyo. The Tokyo subways system very large and complex. So much so there are actually two main networks. I had to stick with the most simplistic layout I could find that... Read more »
