New Ocean website from Mark Jones
« on: 17:10, 20 June 12 »
http://www.oceansoftwareltd.com

  it has an evolving gallery of ocean/imagine art which will expand to encompass 3rd party fan art on all formats.
 
 It also incorporates the forum from the sadly defunct Ocean Experience website, which is frequented by many of the ocean employees.

Wrong Jones I'm afraid :) a usual problem.

there were 2 Jones' working at Ocean. Mark K. (senior) and Mark R. (junior) both artists to make it more complicated :) this one is Mark R. who mainly did Spectrum artwork (like Wizball)

Does it really matter where it is in the menu? as long as its one of the 3 there and its a complete collection. it was just the last system to be populated in the database.

Steve

btw if anyone knows of any 3rd party fan art for the amstrad based on Ocean/Imagine games/artwork please let them know. That will be another collection on there eventually.

They were not related in any way. Hell, how could junior be bothered with doing Spectrum-art if he had grown up with a dad who drew Gryzor and Renegade for the Amstrad CPC. He worked at Ocean only for about a year. Here is an interview with senior T.A.C.G.R. - Mark Jones Interview

FWIW, there are about 5 different Dave Jones working in the UK games industry. Make things very confusing!
