RIP Oli Frey
« on: 2022-Aug-29 »
An art legend from the 8bit days, many an Oli Frey magazine cover was better than the games own actual cover art...

Never knew him by name, but have seen his art on both crash and zzap.
Very talented, a sad loss.

I subscribe to the new Crash magazine (https://www.patreon.com/crashmagazine) - he produced some very good artwork and certainly someone missed in the community.

RIP
I looked at some of his work, and those magazine covers look great, true artist. Covers of many other magazines where copy/paste or simple reworks from official game art, even years later.
