I recently had the pleasure of working on a piece of tribute art for the upcoming Square Enix Hitman Trilogy. If you’re unfamiliar with the Hitman video games, you play as Agent 47, an infallible assassin-for-hire who must eliminate his targets using clever methods to avoid detection. The Hitman Trilogy boxed set will come with the first 3 games, remastered in HD, and an exclusive “art book” featuring 22 pieces of never before seen reinterpretations of classic moments from the those games. I was asked to illustrate the Anathema mission, in which you must assassinate Don Guillani, a Sicilian Mafia boss. As he is an avid golfer, one of the ways you can dispose of him without raising the alarms that a gunshot would, is to use his own golf club to do the deed.
The Hitman Trilogy HD will be released on January 29, 2013 for Playstation 3 and XBox 360.
