Mick McGinty, the artist behind iconic video game covers such as the SNES version of Street Fighter 2 and the Mega Drive’s Kid Chameleon, has died following a battle with cancer.
McGinty passed away peacefully surrounded by his family, his son Jobey wrote in a post which shared numerous memories of his father (thanks, VGDensetsu).
“I’ve been an artist since age five, when I remember drawing an airplane better than my older brother,” wrote McGinty of his career.
In 2007, McGinty relocated to Arizona to be nearer to his family, where he continued to work on his own fine art and oil paintings.
