The Pay Off!
For all of you who know us personally, this won't come as a shock...We LOVE video games! We have spent countless hours playing video games, arguing about them and even discussing ways to improve them. So you knew that at some point they would enter into Themba's art.
In video games, the point is almost always the same; Get to the boss and defeat him (sports games excluded). We decided to depict the main character playing a classic board game with his or her final boss. However, when we started talking about the paintings Themba would do for the show, we were reminded that some games were so fucking hard that we never made it to the last guy and we didn't even know what he looked like. Therefore we had to do some research.
So for all the video game heads out there, here's Sir Arthur from Ghost 'n Goblins battling his nemesis Satan at a game of Risk. Yep Satan! He has two fucking heads and they both shoot fire! If you beat this game then you are a supreme nerd and get all the props.
