The Last of Us comes to England, courtesy of Jim’ll Paint It and HBO’s The Last of the Summer Wine.
Yes, this is a very, very British joke, so if you’re a fan of HBO’s The Last of Us and it’s going right over your head, don’t worry. The Last of the Summer Wine was a long-running comedy show that ran nearly forty years. It featured a trio of British retirees getting into all sorts of scrape. Think One Foot in the Grave but with less meanness and more gentle shenanigans.
Now, artist Jim’ll Paint Is has mashed to two together, with protagonists Compo, Clegg and Foggy taking on Clickers in a bathtub. We’re not entirely sure which mushroom-headed character is trying to eat them. But our guess is Marina, with Howard spilling his guts in the background.
Like many of Jim’s pieces, it’s been painted in MS Paint. No, really. And it’s absolutely glorious – we’re ordering a print the moment we publish this piece. In fact, we’d go so far as to say this is finest piece of work though there’s a lot of competition. His Michael Myers painting, which features the wrong Michael Myers, is just glorious.
I cannot for the life of me find the original request for this. Did I dream it? If you requested this please get in touch with a screenshot so I can credit you and send you a print. pic.twitter.com/vubuAkbvsR

The idea for this piece was put forward by Guy Joyner, via Facebook. Jim sells his prints online but also has a Patreon you can join, to support his continuing artistic endeavours. You can order this particular print from Jim’s online store here, so it can take pride of place in your lounge, gaming room or toilet.
