On Friday, the artist responsible for tons of fantastic gaming box art, Greg Martin, passed away.
The news broke on Nintendo Age Forums that the creator of some of the greatest box art of all time had passed away though no cause of death was given. In the days where Photoshop was a pencil and paper, Martin would draw up large packaging artwork concepts for weeks at a time that went on to become some of the most memorable boxes of my childhood.
Here are a few of my favorites (pictures from Nintendo Age):
Thank you sir. You made growing up fun and colorful.
