The Original Sketches of Super Mario Bros

In a video shown at last year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Super Mario Bros co-creators Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka revealed the way they designed the now legendary video game: using graph paper. Digging through old documents, the two show off hand-drawn designs for various characters, levels and interfaces. After finalizing sketches, the duo handed them off to programmers who translated them into code. Head to ArchDaily to see more of the priceless drawings.
