Greg Martin, the artist who's responsible for dozens and dozens of retro video game box art has died.

Martin's work graced the covers of now classic titles like Bonk's Adventure, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Ducktales 2.  Martin's career spanned the NES, Sega Genesis, and Super Nintendo era with Martin's signature style becoming a hallmark of the retro era. Chances are you've seen Martin's work either in your own collection or online at some point.

Martin got his start as an artist at Hanna Barbara, where he developed his immediately recognizable style. Our thoughts go out to the Martin family.
