Frank Frazetta 1928-2010


What can I say? His work has always meant a lot to me, obviously. I can't help but feel sad about this.

From his family:
Frank Frazetta, one of the most renowned fantasy illustrators of the 20th century whose stunning and energetic images influenced a generation, died this afternoon at a hospital near his home in Boca Grande, Florida. He was 82.

The cause of death was a stroke.

  4. Wow, such sad news. He achieved immortality through his art though, he'll live on forever through the artists he influenced and will influence and the many people who love his work.

  7. Frazetta is such a standard and such a great Master in his genre. RIP.
    (I secretly wish Andrew Stanton could contact you in order to create a special hommage to Frazetta's style since he is the director on "John Carter of Mars" that Frazetta illustrated so well.)

  9. I just bought a book of his work yesterday.

    I'm glad he had the time and the ambition to produce the work that he did. No one did Conan like Frazetta. I will paint in honor of him.

  13. I think one of Frank Frazetta's best traits was his perseverance. He was never happy to settle for where he was in his work; he kept pushing himself to new heights. It was his drive to improve that allowed him to reach such seemingly unattainable heights. Rest in peace Frank.
