RIP Bernie Drummond
« on: 22:51, 17 November 21 »
I've learnt that Bernie Drummond, the artist responsible for the graphics in two of the ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC's greatest isometric games, Batman and Head Over Heels, has died:

He also drew the graphics for Match Day II and Super Hero.

There goes another part of our childhoods... :'(

That's heartbreaking.
 :'( :'( :'(

I've always been a big fan, as Bernie was the artist behind my favourite CPC game (Head Over Heels).
RIP Bernie.
