The Brilliant Boss Battle Art Series

boss4.jpg

There was a stage in everyone's life when the term "boss battle" meant something other than a drawn out argument with your employer - when the only buttons you bashed were A and B, rather a set of keys composing a strongly worded email. 

That gold age of childish innocence is the subject of BOSS FIGHT, a triptych art series by artist and animator Nick Derington.

Three of the most legendary final bosses from the Nintendo rostra have been lent a new perspective: Gannon of Zelda, Bowser of Mario and the Mother Brain of Metroid.

Currently available on the Nakatomi store, you can even pick up a glow in the dark set of hand-printed silkscreen prints. Best not use the company credit card though.
