    Clive came across as a nice bloke and a proper eccentric. A quote from that article:

    His daughter said he never had a pocket calculator as far as she knew, instead carrying a slide-rule around with him at all times. And he told interviewers he used neither a computer nor email.

    Looks like he invented JOMO too. RIP Clive.

    Mick McGinty has just passed away. Responsible for some of the most iconic game artwork of the 90's such as Street Fighter 2. I didn't realise he also did just about all of the Zoo Tycoon series artwork as well.

    RiP

    Bugger... I'd say the SF2 artwork on the below SNES cover would be one of the most known, RIP. :(
