So sad to report that father, husband, friend to many and the creator of most of Ocean Software’s iconic artwork,
Bob Wakelin, passed away last night. Wakelin’s art was one of the key reasons Ocean became as big as it did during the ’80s and ’90s. In 1985, Ocean Software managed to secure the first movie licences, such as Rambo, Short Circuit and Cobra, as well as the TV show Miami Vice and RoboCop which spent about a year on the top of the charts.
