Curses...!


Only a couple of you fell into my trap. My last Frazetta post was meant to teach you the same lesson I got taught, but without costing you $1800. That drawing was also a fake, a fact I was blissfully unaware of for the five years it proudly hung in my studio. The only excuse I can offer for that blunder is that the only reproduction I had ever seen of the piece was in a yellowed Ace paperback circa 1965 and printed on low quality newsprint paper.
Still, when you actually get a good look at the both of them together, the truth of the matter becomes painfully obvious.
To quote a famous Scottish engineer: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

  1. This one has much more concrete forms than the copy. Glad to know that this is the real one.
