Via It’s Nice That.
Breaking temporary radio silence here for some depressing news I learned belatedly: Hiro Isono, the illustrator responsible for the iconic cover of Secret of Mana, passed away in May. His work was overflowing with organic life and rife with minute detail of nature’s little touches. It was particularly distinctive in the slick world of videogame illustration and helped lay the foundation for some of the best aspects of the Mana series. Take a look at the link above or the artist’s tag on Tumblr for more from the man.
