RIP Bob Wakelin

Recommended Posts

Wow, I never knew that those covers were all from the same artist. I loved the NZ Story, Rainbow Islands and Batman artwork. They have a special place in my nostalgic heart.

I hope there are more to be added but have a nagging fear that some of them ended up in an Ocean skip before they could get scanned properly :/


Yeah, that’s exactly what happened (iirc after Infogrames bought the company). Bob managed to salvage some of them after a tip off from someone. Kind of makes me chuckle when reading Atari (preciously Inforgrames) are selling off Ocean IP for licensing purposes. Like they gave a shit about keeping contracts, seeing as they were dumping the original artwork.

 

Although iirc he did sell off a lot of his originals in the early 2000s.

I'm hoping these are good quality prints. I can see myself buying more. Sadly there was no sign of magnets etc on the etsy site. 


If you go on Facebook (Bobwakelinartwork I think) you could contact Gill and ask.

 

The print quality is Good Enough. I do gallery quality prints of my wife's artwork which are lightfast for 80 years. These are nowhere near that - standard inkjet on decent paper - but certainly good enough for the money.
