When facing the birth of another child, many parents would be pulling their hair out trying to figure out the wonderful details that come with parenthood, but Wes took it as a challenge. What was the theme of the nursery going to be?
Already having experience creating a Legend of Zelda and Yoshi’s Island nursery, he knew he had to go above and beyond anything he had done before. He wanted to work on Mario, but Paper Mario had already been done. That’s when he decided on Mario Kart 8.
After a year and a half of work, this puppy is finally done! After creating my Legend of Zelda and Yoshi’s Island nurseries, I knew I had to up the ante just a bit. After searching online, there didn’t seem to be any big attempts at a Mario Kart nursery out there, and with the newest version coming out, Mario Kart 8, that sparked my interest. I had a vision in my head and set out to make it happen.
This project was an excuse to get familiar with several new materials and techniques such as styrofoam sculpting and silicone molding/ resin casting.

Huge props go out to Wes and the amazing work he’s done on the nursery. That’s has to be one of the happiest children in the world.
