Faculty Response:
Drawing from the early days of Nintendo, this print of Mike Tyson from Punch Out depicts the nearly unbeatable boss on the ropes, providing a glimpse of a victory many never accomplished in the game. Chicago artist, Tony Fitzpatrick, channels his street art and boxing background into this print image, where the floating hands of 3 and 5 reinforce the 8-count for a boxer on the verge of a technical knock-out. Action lines wrap around his arms and legs like barbed wire as a bloody Mike Tyson touches the ground with one knee as if begging the question, can he continue?
