The King is Dead


The King is Dead. My favorite artist Frank Frazetta has passed away. Words cannot fully express the great exhilaration I have for his fantastic art. I had hoped to get an autographed work one day-alas. This is a very small example of his magnificent works.
Thanks for sharing your gift Frank, you are a true legend.

Yep, he was The Man when it came to fantasy artwork, a genius.

Jane-oh yeah, the second from the last recently sold for an incredible amount-I'm forgetting how much but more than most peoples homes I am sure.
So visceral and powerful.

Brian-absolutely a true giant among men.

I've got a couple of the books collecting his work here, and some collectable cards. Great talent.

Lisa-oh yeah the vivid imagery tells so much.

Charles-I've only got one Frazetta artbook but my office is plastered with images from Frank.
