This is so out of left field awesome. I love the Mario Kart one.

It really is. It's a combination I know I would have never come up with myself, and the crazy thing is, it works. But, the best part of the whole process, other than a great artist getting some recognition, is that it's helping to bring back the art of woodblock print making as well (which was unfortunately disappearing in Japan).
