LAKITU: HELLMOUTH

I can't even remember the context of this illustration now, except that it was for a column in Edge magazine. It shows Lakitu, one of the most irritating adversaries in Nintendo's roster, as the Hellmouth - a common medieval depiction of the entrance to hell as a multiply mawed and very hungry creature, stuffing itself with hapless butt-naked men. Yummy!
