R.I.P Frank Frazetta 1928-2010

Legendary fantasy artist Frank Frazetta passed away today from a stroke. You would be hard pressed to find an artist that was not inspired by Frazetta. If imitation is the greatest form of flattery, then frank was the most complimented artist of our time.

His mastery of color, composition and uncanny ability to capture action and tell a story with his images were unparalleled in the industry of comics and fantasy art. I have had the honor of meeting Frank on several occasions and getting honest feedback from him on my portfolio. I was also exposed to many rare pieces of his art, while working for Kitchen Sink press years ago. I am speaking of the work he did on the lil Abner strip and some of his funny animal drawings, as well as the more popular Death Dealer pieces. What else can I say that his art can't say for itself. Here are some of my favorite Frazetta Pieces. Rest in Peace old friend.
