The main event at my high school is a basketball tournament we host every year known as LIT. It is the highlight of the year and was especially for me this year as I am a starter on the team this year!
Anyways the relevance to the Giant Bomb community is that every year the tournament has a theme, and this year's theme was video games. A big part of the preparation for the tournament is decorating the gym to fit both the theme and basketball, and this is primarily done with huge painted panels that are put on the walls. I always look forward to the panels because often the chosen theme and basketball are combined in really great ways. The talent level on display is crazy and keep in mind when looking at the photos that all the art was designed and painted by high school students with very minimal teacher assistance. Plus my school is pretty small (400 ish students) and to put on a tournament at the high level of LIT each and every year is truly remarkable.
But without further preamble, here are some pictures of the decorations put up in the gym for the tournament that I think the GB folks will get a kick out of. (just to help make sense of some aspects, the tournament is known as LIT, it is the 59th annual, an my school is commonly abbreviated to LCHS or just LC, so if you see any of those in the art that is why.)
*Note I did not paint any of these, but I did take the pictures myself.
