We asked artist Kevin O'Connor to clarify for us if he contributed to any artwork for this game. He replies:
The only work I recall doing on Fathom was the design and art for the brochure which we created to look like a page out of a comic book. Greg Freres was the lead artist and I believe handled all the graphics for the game.
